HELP FORMER FOSTER YOUTH
In LA County more than 1,100 young people “age-out” of foster care each year. The transition to adulthood is difficult. Unlike their peers, who often receive financial help and emotional support from family, former foster youth struggle with economic insecurity, housing instability, and social isolation.
At least 1-in-5 will experience homelessness
About one-fourth will end up in jail
The odds are stacked against them, but your donation can help change their path at this critical stage in life.
Hathaway-Sycamores provides housing and support services to assist recently emancipated foster youth who suffered from unstable childhoods; often including neglect, abuse and drug addiction. Government funds cover many of the costs to run this program, but there is an annual gap of over $3,200.00 needed for each resident. That balance is raised through private sources.
