DID YOU KNOW?

     

Foster youth are one of the most vulnerable subgroups of children living in the the United States. According to Foster Care statistics & resources, approximately 443,000 children and youth are currently in foster care in the United States and 30,000 youth between the ages of 18-21 "age out" of the foster care system annually.  

 

These at-risk youth:

  • Have the highest high school dropped rate of 50% and are often unable to take and pass the GED test;

  • Are unprepared for college level work;

  • Although 70% say they would like to go to college, less than 3% will earn a college degree in their life time;

  • Within four years of aging out of the foster care system, 50% of youth have no earnings;

  • those who do have earnings make less than $7,500 a year and are unable to economically sustain themselves;

  • Lack of preparation for adult life results in 60% of these youth being convicted of a crime.

Findings show that Domestic Violence inflicts harm to children such as emotional harm, psychological harm, physical pain, and low self-esteem, which impacts the child's learning systems, thereby influencing a child to lose interest in education, arrive late to school, be absent from school, and drop out of school.

 

Together, we can help them reshape the trajectory of their lives.

Won't you or someone you know join us?
