Your helping hands are needed for youth aging out of foster care!
Teachers – We have a great list of topics lined up – and a short curriculum. We know that teaching is no joke, so we’d love some help from those gifted in teaching!
Legal – Help is needed in many areas as we are getting into sensitives things like teaching sometimes dangerous life skills, providing housing, etc
Corporate Giving Team – we need help connecting with the local corporate community to help provide gifts and help to youth in need – things like backpacks, notebooks, pencils, food, clothing, etc.
Volunteers for our classes – we need adults who will attend our classes in order to help, connect with, and pray for the youth.
Cooks for our classes – we’d love to feed the youth! For one, who doesn’t like free food? Aside from that, many aged out foster youth are food insecure. This may be the only dinner available to them. Having dinner also creates the opportunity for the youth to have some casual connection with each other and our volunteers.
Guest speakers for our classes – with all the topics we are covering, the youth would be best served by having experts or professionals teach and answer questions about particular areas. See the topics we’ll be covering in this blog post.
If you have a skill set or time to volunteer, please contact us!

We love to encourage and come together with the other organizations on the same mission. Here’s some other places if you can get involved in different ways!
Get to know someone special
There are many organizations that mentor foster kids. Here are a few great ones in the Los Angeles area.
Fostering Hope LA – A Christian youth mentoring organization in the South Bay
Fostering Youth Independence – Youth mentoring organization in Santa Clarita
Young Life Impacting Hearts – National Christian Organization working with foster youth
Foster or Adopt
Teens are in need of a family
Prevent aging out! Consider adopting or fostering a teen and continuing the relationship into adulthood. Adults need family too.
We love Olive Crest as a great resource for those who’d like to foster or foster-to-adopt.
Your Contribution Matters
However you decide to get involved, you can make a difference – a life changing difference – in the life of someone who thought they had no one. Just knowing so many caring hands and hearts are working to bring love & support can be an encouragement to these youth. Sometimes you won’t see the results right away, but loving others is never a loss.
We hope one day aging out goes away, in the meantime, please join us to bring hope, love, & light into a tough situation.
