For many Los Angelenos, the holidays are a time of joyful celebration with family and loved ones. For many of our city’s foster youth population, especially those who have left the system, the holidays can be lonely and depressing. The RightWay Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides mental health services and job readiness to Transition Age Youth (TAYs), is trying to make a meaningful difference by combating the tremendous failure rate of youth emancipating from the foster care system.
In June 2012, we launched Operation Emancipation, a unique 8 week program that is the first of its kind, and which achieved startling results – 70% of the TAYs that participated were placed in jobs or went on to higher education. We are determined to not only repeat this success and expand the numbers of youth we serve, but just as important, we are committed to provide continuing mental health and job training services to the kids we have already placed so that they can retain their jobs and/or stay in school.
On December 19, 2013, The RightWay Foundation is holding our second annual luncheon to honor our foster youth who have graduated from our program and to recognize the supporters who have helped provide employment for our youth and funding for our programs. This is also the time when we raise funds to support our critical programming. I would like to invite you to attend and support this worthy cause. Perhaps you would like to explore ways that your company's foundation can direct its charitable dollars.
To help support our cause, you can purchase an advertisement in our program and/or purchase a table for your staff and/or sponsor a table for foster youths. Any and all donations are welcome.
