May is National Foster Care Awareness Month. Our mission to assist young adults aging out of foster care continues and is needed more than ever. COVID-19 is having a profound impact on the vulnerable population we serve. In addition to health and safety concerns, our recipients are facing harsh economic realities including unemployment, food insecurity and potential housing instability.
Hearts to Homes is fortunate to have been given a $20,000 Matching Challenge from a generous donor. Our goal is to raise $20,000 to meet this match by May 31. Raising a total of $40,000 this month will allow us to alleviate some of these burdens for our foster youth. We also anticipate an unusually large influx of referrals when the pause is lifted.
We understand times are tough for many of us. A gift of any amount will help us meet this match and allow us to provide some relief to our recipients. Your support makes a world of difference to a young person who has aged out of foster care.
Please stay safe and healthy!
