OUR impact

What if we can break the cycle of foster care everywhere in America by simply remembering that our children thrive in communities, not systems, and then begin to build those supportive communities for children and families struggling to thrive – replacing those systems forever?

A Cycle That Can Be Broken

Every year, hundreds of young people leave a System they were placed in because of circumstances beyond their control, too often feeling Unsure, Unprepared and Disconnected.

This Is the Challenge

The roots of dependency for young people transitioning from foster care are grounded in a fundamental gap that begins long before emancipation.  

A lack of consistent caring relationships often continues through multiple and impermanent placements.  

Is it any wonder that outcomes have been discouraging for youth leaving the system after 18 without the benefit of an extended family?

And a cycle of dependency and despair affects one generation after another.

Fill the Gap. Break the Cycle for 800 Youth a Year.
