Texas Department of Family and Protective Services Preparation for Adult Living (PAL) Program

The Preparation for Adult Living (PAL) program was implemented to ensure older youth in foster care are prepared for their departure from the Texas Department of Family Protective Services care. PAL strives to provide youth with skills and resources they will need to be healthy, productive adults who will be able to face the challenges of adulthood and independence. Students who successfully complete PAL classes may be eligible for a wide range of Benefits for Youth Transitioning from Foster Care to Adulthood, including tuition and fee waivers to institutions of higher education in Texas. Student may contact their assigned Regional PAL Coordinator to access these benefits.​
