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.
UPDATE ON ROBYN:
We are so proud to announce that after graduating our program, Robyn accepted a position with THRU Project as our Program Outreach Coordinator! She remains a valuable member of our team, both her expertise as a professional in her field as well as her unique perspective of a THRU Youth Graduate of all of our programs! In her day-to-day, Robyn works very closely with our youth and their mentors.
Robyn graduated from University of Texas San Antonio with a degree in Health with a concentration in Community and Preventative Services. Robyn has worked with Communities in Schools of South Central Texas working with at-risk youth and now working with THRU Project. Robyn aged out of the foster care system at 19, bringing a unique perspective to the program. As a former foster kid Robyn understands the importance of having someone in your life who cares about you and encourages you to pursue your dreams. Robyn’s goal is to inspire youth to pursue their dreams and break the cycle.
