The Turner Foundation hosts open house on new property for former foster youth

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - The Turner Foundation held a ribbon-cutting and open house for a property that will house a dozen young people who aged out of foster care or are experiencing homelessness.

It's called the "Lisa Smith Wengler Foundation House." It's actually three separate homes for transitional age youth ages 18-24.

The Turner Foundation is working with the YMCA's Youth and Family Services department to provide case management for the participants.
