Did You Know?
For youth who age out of foster care there is an increased rate of homelessness, unplanned pregnancy, incarceration and a less than 3% chance of attending college.
Our mission is to provide a stable environment to enable our local “aged out” foster care population ages
18-24 to focus on personal development, higher education, mental health, as well as life and workforce skills. With the support of our local community hosts and donors, we enable our youth to thrive in our communities, not just survive!
Ways We Help
The Focus of Our Efforts
Creating a Foundation for the Future
YADS Corp believes that it is important to develop valuable life and workplace skills to enable aged out foster youth to have options in pursuing a career path. Our main goal is to enable our youth to become financially independent and ready to take on responsibilities of becoming an adult.
It Takes a Village!
It has become increasingly difficult to manage the stress and pressures of the world, but that burden feels even heavier for a teen who has aged out of foster care. Through the help of our local community members, we are able to change the lives of the next generation. No matter if it is a small donation or opening the doors of your home to a youth in need, it takes a village to be able to give our youth a fighting chance at a future we all could be proud of.
We are extremely grateful and encourage all to inquire about getting involved!
