Every year hundreds of youth age out of foster care without a permanent family and face overwhelming challenges. Homelessness, poverty, drug abuse, trafficking & incarceration are all too often the end result. However, a single caring adult can change the course of their lives. Maybe you can help them learn how to manage their finances or provide transportation. Maybe you can just be a listening ear and advisor as they launch into independence. There are many ways to support older youth on their journey into adulthood.
Please send us an email if you have an interest in becoming a mentor to an older youth or have questions.

“Our call is to fully love these children while we have them & accept the costs we may incur as worthwhile in terms of the gain they stand to receive.”
