Silicon Labs employees rallied together for a summer donation drive benefiting the Transitional Living Program at The Settlement Home.
The generous donation of important living necessities included laundry baskets, shower curtains, trash cans, bed sheets and other household items. For young adults who are transitioning into their first apartment these items are important, but can be an expense that adds up quickly.
The transition into adulthood can be a difficult one for children aging out of the foster care system. To provide a greater chance for successful independence, The Settlement Home for Children established a Transitional Living Program in 2011. This program serves female youth over age 18, who have decided to remain in foster care voluntarily or who were previously in foster care and want a program to help prepare them for complete independence (under certain criteria).
Thank you Silicon Labs for this wonderful donation!
