Join us in making a difference in the lives of the young adults that have been displaced from their families and forced to start their life a new, in a world where society has placed all odds against them.
With an average of 20,000 young adults aging out of the foster care system every year across the U.S., some with no place to go or no one to turn too, it is time that we as whole, see that our young adults are set up for success. Let's be honest, school does not equip you for what society really has in store for a young adult. Life is about a lot more than what you learn in a textbook, and so it is our mission to reach those who need us most and guide them as needed to be the best they can be, and some!
How did all of this come about, you ask?!?
GOD! Point. Blank. Period.
After seeking change in my life, not only for myself, but for my three children, I knew I needed to find my purpose. So, I began asking God what His purpose was for me. To be honest, I wasn't ready for what He was about to lay on my heart... but then it all made sense. The places I have been, the people who have been a part of my story (big or little), the things that I have been through and seen in life, have all played apart leading up to this. (I may or may not start a blog to share my story! Stay tuned!)
I don't take this purpose lightly, as I know that God has a purpose not only for myself, but for ALL of His children. So, it is time we step up and live in our purpose that God has for us, so we can lead these young adults to be successful and purposeful as God intended them to be.
How can you help?!?
You can start by purchasing your hand dyed, customized t-shirt!!
The sale of each shirt will fund our non-profit organization. Our non-profit organization will be geared towards funding housing, mentor programs, and scholarships for young adults who are aging out of the foster care system.
There is a list of things that we want to accomplish as a non-profit organization, but it takes a lot of funding, so this is just the beginning! In the very near future, we look forward to presenting our non-profit organization with a name as a 501(C)(3), setting up fundraisers, and MUCH MORE.
The time is NOW to make a difference!! God needs His children now, more than ever, to make a change! We are ready, are you?!? If so, we welcome you along this journey and genuinely look forward to sharing any ideas on how you can be a part of the change, too!
Thank you for taking the time to read this and helping us on our FIRST mission, as we cannot wait to get started! Like we said before, this is just the beginning, with a much bigger mission ahead of us, on impacting the lives of these young adults! They need you more than ever!!
