The only thing more challenging than living in the foster
care system is leaving the foster care system. You could be that one person who was there for that young adult during this most challenging time. Imagine seeing a youth in need to a successful adult, living independently.
Advisors (mentors) commit to a one-year relationship with a former foster youth consisting of at least one face-to-face visit and at least two other contacts (phone, text, Facebook, etc.) per month. Completion of an application, background checks and one two-hour training session is required.
We are always in need of Advisors who can be that one person for these
youth. Together, with the Preparation for Adult Living (PAL) resources at Baptist Child & Family Services (BCFS) you can make a difference!
