Why Are We Needed?
Every year in Colorado over 500 young people ‘age-out’ of foster care. Many are still in high school and nearly half experience homelessness and a downward spiral begins – resulting in over 8,000 homeless youth under the age of 24 in Colorado at this point-in-time (2014). This is an opportunity to be matched with a supportive, caring community of inspirational mentors to move from uncertainty to possibility.
