Removing Barriers and Creating Opportunities
About We Kan Drive
We Kan Drive is a program that helps to remove the barriers youth in foster care face when working towards obtaining their drivers license. Getting a drivers license is a critical piece to help youth transition into adulthood, and typically parents help support their child learn how to drive and log driving hours. For youth in foster care this can be more challenging. DCCCA and the Kansas Department for Children and Families have partnered together to provide educational and financial support to help teens and young adults
