Law360, Los Angeles (March 29, 2016, 7:40 PM EDT) -- The Mission Creek Band of Mission Indians sued the U.S. Department of the Interior on Monday in California federal court for failing to federally recognize the tribe and seeking an order for 2,560 acres of former reservation to be placed into federal trust.

The Southern California Indian tribe, descendants of a branch of the Southern Paiute who have occupied the Mojave Desert, allege that top officials led by Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell breached their fiduciary duty to Mission Creek

Mission Creek Age out Dorms for young adults coming of age from the Foster System

Children usually "age out" of foster care when they turn 18 years old, the age of emancipation in most states. However, there’s no set age that marks the end of foster care. Federal guidelines require states to assist children during their transition from foster care to independence, beginning as early as the state agencies find appropriate, and in some cases as early as age 13.

The Aging Out Transition
When children age out of foster care, they become ineligible to receive state assistance with housing, food, and medical care under the foster care system. The federal government recognized that this, coupled with the fact that foster children typically already suffer ill-effects due to the lack of a stable home environment while growing up, was causing newly emancipated young adults to suffer higher rates of substance abuse, mental illness, teen pregnancy, homelessness, and arrests.

In response, the government created the John H. Chafee Foster Care Independence Program (CFCIP) under Title I of the Foster Care Independence Act of 1999 to provide funding for states to assist youth (up to age 21) in foster care to make a smoother, more successful transition to adulthood. States use the funds to improve the quality of transitional support available to foster youth. Sometimes or Most times these programs are not enough,  

Mission Creek  would provide an easier transition from Foster Care to a responsible and profitable adult life by providing : 
1. Promoting stable, permanent connections to caring young adults
2. Helping youth manage and meet their health needs, often through temporary Medicaid coverage
3. Supporting economic success through educational vouchers to higher education institutions and employment programs
4. Providing life skills training to help youth navigate the adult world
5. Improving access to stable and safe DORM housing, which varies between full assistance from age 16 to college graduationand to students where no financial assistance is available
