The mission of Living Advantage is to eliminate unemployment, homelessness and incarceration for youth in foster care living in Los Angeles County. By locating and electronically storing their vital life documents they are identifiable and able to receive services and resources from the community on a consistent basis. Utilizing innovative technology and media enables us to better serve and meet their needs.
Our story seems to fit a James Bond 007 movie. As an international secret agent, often adopts false IDENTITIES in order to PROTECT his own. BOND…JAMES BOND has the ability to create or change his identity as needed. He knows better than anyone that IDENTITY = OPPORTUNITY, which is why ADVANTAGE …LIVING ADVANTAGE has made it our mission to protect the identities of our foster youth.
Our innovative approach is to enlightening foster youth by teaching them the importance of having access to their personal identifiable information, “their identity”. We found a common thread amongst the staggering statistics that our population goes through, LACK OF ACCESS TO THEIR VITAL DOCUMENTS! They have lack of access to their birth certificates, social security cards and some form of a photo identification card. The paradigm would be by foster youth having access to their documents they receive services on a consistent basis -- there is no disconnect of services which ultimately result in higher success rates. Foster youth understanding the value of their identity with extensive support services from ADVANTAGE, LIVING ADVANTAGE allows them better access to higher education, employment training, career placement, and consistency of multiple services and resources throughout the community.
Remember over the course of 24 movies, BOND…JAMES BOND 007 has had access to 193 gadgets. These technological devices have helped him complete his missions. Advance technology such as our e-Lockbox design also plays a huge part in allowing ADVANTAGE….LIVING ADVANTAGE to advance in our mission that ensures foster youth will always have access to their protected identifying documents.
