Homeless youth in Kandiyohi County make the transition


WILLMAR -- When T.C. was 16 years old, she and her 3-month-old daughter were in foster care.

Two years later the Kandiyohi County youth was pregnant with her second child.

But because she was 18 and no longer qualified for foster care, she found herself at risk of being homeless with two young children.

That's when she was referred to Lutheran Social Services' Youth Program, which served 68 Kandiyohi County youth last year.
