Help Youth Aging Out of Foster Care

A furnished apartment is a small investment in a young adult’s future.

“With your help, I was able to have a big weight lifted off my shoulders. I was very worried about my transition from care to independent living. Luckily for me, you were able to help me.”

The Problem

At age 21, youth who where in foster care are on their own. Without a support and a stable home, these young adults are headed for a life of despair.

Half of young mothers who age out of foster care lose their children to foster care.

The Solution

Hearts to Homes complements other programs for youth aging out of foster care. Stable housing provides the solid foundation that youth need to succeed in life.

None of the young mothers who we support have lost their children to foster care.
