THRU Project bridges the gap between foster care and adulthood for youth who age out of the foster care system.

Exiting foster care alone at age 18 can be overwhelming. The statistics show increased rates of homelessness, unplanned pregnancy, and incarceration amongst foster alumni.

THRU Project provides youth with a history of foster care, ages 14 to 25, with a caring mentor, rent-free housing, mental health support, life skills workshops, bus passes and cell phones.

YOUR SUPPORT CAN HELP US MAKE A GREATER IMPACT!

Do you have a history of foster care?

Aging out of foster care doesn’t mean you are on your own. We can help connect you to resources, including a volunteer mentor who can serve as a listening ear as you transition to independent living.

Are you a caring adult?

A few hours of your time each month can make a big impact. Find out how you can make a difference in the life of a former foster youth. We’ll give you everything you need to serve as a THRU Project Mentor.
