The mission of the Hope U Foundation is twofold:
- Empower young people ages 14-21 who are still in the foster care system to attain autonomy by teaching them Independent Living Skills and Transitional Life Skills so they are better prepared when they age out of the foster care system, and
- Offer housing assistance, mentoring and education/reinforcement of Independent Living Skills and Transitional Life skills, as well as Vocational Job Training paths to those young people between the ages of 18 and 26 who have exited the foster care system
For youth still in care, we have time to teach them the skills they will need before they exit out of care. We can prevent these youth from becoming statistics.
For youth who have exited out of care, we are stepping in to provide them the support and skills they will need now that they have no choice but to be out on their own.
