Preventing Youth Homelessness
So many of our youth that reaches the maximum age to be housed by the foster care system become instantly homeless.
We have created a housing program that provides our youth with a real family experience. Our program will provide the opportunity for them to have their own rooms and eat dinner as a family a luxury that some have never experienced.
During their time in the home, we will prepare them for the second year of our program by providing them with an individualized coaching and education plan.
Our focus is to provide our youth with time to heal and build a foundation of trust with us.
If you would like to donate to this program financially, in-kind, or have a home that you would like to donate for a year to 18 months please do not hesitate to email us.
We have to IMPACT these statistics change is well overdue
Only 5% of rural foster youth and 21% of urban foster youth report access to a computer at home
Within four years of aging out, 50% have no earnings, and those who do make an average annual income of $7,500
73% of the cases of child maltreatment are due to neglect
More than 40% of the children who reach the age of 18 while in foster care were in the system for more than 3 years
Children who are adopted make up over 10% of the total referrals for child therapy
There is less than a 3% chance for children who have aged out of foster care to earn a college degree at any point in their life
