This organization desires to provide hope to other foster care students by providing resources that can help change their lives. Within the United States, 50% of foster youth high school students graduate, and 3% of foster youth students will graduate with an associates or a bachelors degree. 61% of foster youth end up homeless. These numbers exist due to the lack of emotional, financial, and academic support. If we work together, we can support foster youth in the successful transition of getting on their feet either by continuing their education or increasing their workforce development skills.
