Invest in the future of the children and youth in the Texas foster care system.
Of the 30,577 children in Texas foster care, 1,200 youth age out of foster care every year.
The average 18 year old looks forward to the new found independence that comes with going off to college or getting their first apartment. Unfortunately, many 18 year olds aging out of foster care don’t have the same support system, resources or knowledge for a successful transition. The Fostering Success Foundation New Beginnings Box provides essential items for their new home.
The holidays should be a time for celebration and family, not worry and loneliness. The Fostering Success Foundation Wish List Holiday Gift Drive focuses on giving the foster youth in group homes and Transitional Living Programs a well deserved and family oriented holiday celebration. No child should feel alone, sad or out of place during the holiday season.
Going off to college can be exciting and scary for anyone and the youth in foster care who pursue higher education can be met with even more adversity during the transition. The Fostering Success Foundation College Bound School Supply Drive focuses on providing foster youth with college specific school supplies and independent living necessities.
In Progress Programs
The PAL program is designed to prepare older foster youth for independent living after they "Age Out" of foster care. The Preparation for Adult Living program strives to provide each of the more than 3,500 youth 16 years and older who are currently in foster care with the skills and resources they need to become successful, secure and productive adults members of society.
The Transitional Living Program at Fostering Success Foundation provides a safe living environment set aside for Transitional Living and Programatic Services that are designed for older youth in foster care. A transitional living program is not an independent living program.
