BRIDGING THE GAP: HOUSING IMPACT
Started in 2018 and by far our most ambitious, but most hope-filled program, THRU Project's NEXT STEP HOUSING PROGRAM addresses the very serious and very real issue of homelessness after aging out of foster care.
Think about it for a moment, if you don't have a safe, stable home, then everything else can easily fall apart -- work, school, relationships -- making it seen impossible to get ahead in life and actually succeed.

Our NEXT STEP HOUSING PROGRAM offers free and/or subsidized rent for one full year to eligible youth. During that year, we work closely with our housing participants to teach them financial responsibility and the importance of saving for the future.
