LOVE LOOKS
LIKE THIS

As a non-profit organization, we seek to minimize the adverse impacts facing young adults aging out of Foster Care by facilitating mentorships, education & training, improving self-advocacy, and building circles of support.

WHAT WE DO


Education & Real-world Training

We all learn in different ways. Certainly, opportunity, support, and context are important elements to consider when acquiring a new skill or improving on things we know and understand.

Our mentors work one on one with program participants to acquire and improve basic living skills and special areas of interest. We hold fast to a value that promotes empowerment and self-direction.

Building Person-Centric Circles

While protective custody seeks to provide a “safe” and “stable” system of care for children growing up in foster care, we must also agree that systems are limited by their very nature. Paid staff, clinicians, and professionals do not replace relationships. We are undoubtedly stronger when we have relationships in our lives that are right for us.

Our person-centric approach assumes capacity. The dignity and intrinsic right of a person to self-direct is a core belief in fueling the support we offer.

Improving Self-Advocacy

Autonomy does not necessarily create self-direction and choices are limited when we don’t have the relational resources we need to build the futures we desire. Relationships are ideally reciprocal.

We hold fast to values that promote empowerment and self-direction.
