The Phased In Project

The Phased In Project

Every year thousands of teens “age out” of foster care and are left to make it on their own. Kile and Patti Bateman are taking these kids who have “phased out” of the system and are phasing them into the real world.

The P.I. Project is a transitional living program for emancipated foster youth. The goal of the PI project is to assist these young adults in learning basic life skills that will prepare them for independent living. Phased In will provide housing, education, medical care and life training through an 18 month program currently sponsored by the North Texas Dream Center. Through the combined partnership of the church, the community, and the State of Texas, the P.I. Project will embrace these youth who were never adopted to ensure that these young adults achieve self-sufficiency and stability. Finally, the P.I Project will provide the most vital and missing dynamic in the lives of these young adults – Family.
