Roughly
500
young people in Virginia age out of foster care
EVERY YEAR
  • 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
CHANGE

The LifeGuide ProjectTM works specifically with older youth in foster care (14-21) who are at risk of not finding an adoptive family before they age out of foster care and most go out into adulthood on their own.

This program works to pair each of these young people with a caring adult in their community who can fulfill a role of friendship and mentorship in their life.

How it works

 

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 churches, business, and other non-profits.

If you work for an independent living program and hope for a better future for the young people in your program, CONTACT US today to partner!
