HomeSweetHome Foundations' mission is to transition aged-out foster youth and at-risk youth between ages 16-26 into adulthood by providing housing, financial literacy, mental health aid, and connection to resources. We are a not-for-profit organization that relies on volunteers and the generosity of American donors.
There are 500,000 homeless citizens in America; 125,000 are youth after they turn 18. Our program will help reduce that population by providing housing via tiny homes and apartments. By implementing a financial literacy course as well the youth will develop more confidence when they graduate into their own accommodations. Mental health aid can help trauma victims grow out of their experience in households. The resources we connect them to can offer opportunities such as jobs, more education opportunities, grants, and many more.
Our youth needs us more than ever, as the homeless population grows everyday the youth makes up almost 50% of that population. As we push to bridge the gap between childhood and adulthood our nationwide dilemma all boils down to home, providing youth affordable and a comfortable place to stay will increase chances for success.
