BENEFITING: A HOME WITHIN INC
There are more than 400,00 kids in the foster care system right now. These kids face trauma and broken relationships, not just when they are removed from their own home, but each time they are moved from foster homes or group homes. This has a profound negative impact on their emotional health and their ability to thrive later in life. As adults, a large majority of them suffer from PTSD and end up homeless, unemployed or in jail. I find this unacceptable and decided to do something about it. A Home Within is an organization based in San Francisco, with a nation-wide network of therapists who provide free therapy to current and former foster children. Each therapist commits to one child for as long as it takes, providing a stable, caring relationship to a child that may have no other. In honor of National Foster Care Month this May, I am raising money for A Home Within. PLEASE JOIN ME in supporting this important cause!
