support older Teens
young people in Virginia age out of foster care
1 out of 4 will be homeless
1 out of 4 won't have access to health insurance
1 out of 4 will be a parent before they are 21
But with your help, this can
The state of Virginia has many organizations that have "Independent Living" programs for older youth in foster care. Virginia's Kids Belong partners with these groups (both government and private) and connects them with adults hoping to make a positive impact in the lives of at-risk youth from our various community partners, including faith communities, businesses, and other non-profits.
If you would like to support older youth as a mentor, employer, or other type of caregiver for older teens who aging out of care or without critical support let us know where you are and what you would like to do.
We will do our best to connect you with just the right places you can serve.
