Jerricka Stewart, right, talks with her roommate Casey Browning, 23, left, and her daughter Mikayla Browning, 22-months-old, while cleaning the bathroom in the transitional living home they share. This is the first time Stewart has ever had her own bathroom because she has been in and out of foster homes and group homes since she was 5-year-old. Stewart moved in to the transitional living home provided by Footsteps to the Future, a foster girls mentoring program, the day after she turned 18 in June. In the home, Stewart and Browning, 23, are responsible for paying rent, creating a monthly budget for themselves and they have to sign a participation agreement - no boys, no alcohol, no drugs.
