Where We’re Focused
Nationally informed. Locally driven.
There are more than 390,000 kids in the foster care system in the United States, most of whom will experience severe trauma while growing up in the system. Only half of these kids will reunite with their biological families, and many will attempt suicide. For the 23,000 young adults who age out of the system, a life of chronic poverty, unplanned pregnancies, incarceration, and homelessness is almost guaranteed.
For Others exists to stand in the gap for these individuals.
