A Thank You From Steven!!!
May 26, 2017
Think back to yourself at age 18, at 21... Were you entirely independent? What did you do if you were struggling? Who did you rely on for help and support? Who did you have in your life to call in an emergency situation?
For many young people aging out of the foster care system each year, the outcomes are not so great. This is in part because, during a time of transition when most would call upon a parent or supportive adult, they often have no one to call. They are on their own.
Steven is a bright and charismatic young man who entered foster care at 5 years old, and now at 21, he is aging out without a place to call home. He has been placed on a 1-2 month long waiting list for housing assistance, but must vacate his current apartment in days. The option presented to him is stay at a local city shelter, losing what little belongings he has. Steven has stated that he would be "safer on the streets."
Please support Steven's success by helping us reach our goal of $1000.00 to rent him a room until his housing assistance becomes available.
