THE MISSION

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. Is it any wonder that outcomes have been discouraging for youth leaving foster care after 18 without the benefit of an extended family? A crisis like the coronavirus pandemic creates even greater inequities for foster youth who are experiencing anxiety and isolation brought on by disruptions in education, loss of employment and income, and significant food and housing insecurities.

Your support EMPOWERS over 1,000 young people in San Diego, ages 18-26, with the safety net, resources, and relationships that every young adult needs to survive and thrive. This includes emergency basic needs such as food and rent, setting up one’s first apartment, education, employment, transportation, mental health, and all the building blocks essential to becoming Confident, Capable, and Connected.
