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 foster youth, ages 14 and up, with a volunteer mentor, free bus passes & cell phones, crucial life skills training, and affordable & stable housing. 

We're on a mission.

To help foster youth overcome the challenges of growing up in the foster care system by providing guidance, support and advocacy in order to prepare them for life after foster care.

Are you a foster youth?

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.

THRU wants YOU! We are looking for compassionate, attentive, and encouraging individuals interested in mentoring a young adult who has aged out of the foster care system. 

Last year, over 1200 Texas youth exited the foster care system; many without any trusted adult to help guide them into adulthood. Will YOU be a guiding light for a young adult in the greater San Antonio Area that has aged out of foster care? 

Please join us for our mentor training, from 10:30-12:30, to learn more about the impact YOU can make in a young adult’s life. Choose one of the two trainings available in October: 10/12 or 10/19

Please join us from 10:30-12:30pm for our mentor training to learn more about the impact YOU can make in a young adult’s life.
