“If I look at the mass, I will never act. If I look at the one, I will” 


-Mother Theresa 

Each year, approximately 200 Houston teenagers age-out of the foster care system. Few of these young adults have the necessary support systems to successfully navigate life on their own. Statistically, they are more likely to go to prison than to college, and there's a good chance they’ll become homeless or trafficked. In addition, many of their own children end up in foster care. With the help of a loving and supportive community, we believe this cycle can be broken. We are proud to champion the work of these local organizations serving former foster youth.
