young adults that transition out of the foster care system are way more likely to face injustices without support and networks of help.
We envision a city in which young adults in foster care do not face injustice once they transition out of the system.
Imagine a world where young adults who have aged out of foster care are able to transition successfully into adulthood. They have stable housing, employment, and mental health support. They are able to achieve their educational and career goals. They are contributing members of their communities. This vision is possible. It requires a commitment from all of us to provide young adults who have aged out of foster care with the resources they need to succeed.
Ensure that they have access to affordable housing.
Help them find employment that pays a living wage.
Provide them with mental health support.
Help them develop life skills, such as budgeting, cooking, and managing their time.
Connect them with supportive adults who can mentor them and provide guidance.
When we provide young adults who have aged out of foster care with the resources they need, they are able to reach their full potential. They can become productive members of society and contribute to the well-being of their communities.
By providing those who have aged out of foster care with employment, life skills, and support, we can help them successfully transition into adulthood. This is an investment in the future, and it is an investment that we cannot afford to ignore.
