Adulthood doesn't come with a set of directions.

Each year 1500 youth exit the foster care system in Texas. They are often alone and ill prepared for the challenges that lay ahead of them.

Your support will help to ensure that we can continue to serve foster and former foster youth and help them on as they learn and grow into successful independent adults.

Your donation will help us to:

  • recruit new Advisor/Mentor volunteers

  • cover the costs of background checks

  • enable ongoing supervision and support for both youth and volunteers

  • provide support services including: cell phone service, bus passes, life-skills workshops and housing
