LYGHT Program

Listening and Led by Youth in Foster Care: Grief, Hope, and Transitions

A Dougy Center Program

As an ongoing group, teens in foster care are always welcome to join!

The L.Y.G.H.T. program provides a safe space for youth in foster care to listen, talk, and offer support to one another as they cope with their grief. This may include missing family, friends, and other important people, as well as other losses in their lives.

We offer bi-weekly meetings and you decide if and when you want to participate. You choose the topics most important to you!

Why join LYGHT?

Teens in foster care choose to join L.Y.G.H.T. because it’s a safe space where youth can feel supported by their peers as they navigate the foster care system, including the losses, successes, and other experiences that are important to them.

Your life and your experiences matter because YOU matter!
