Foster youth in the United States have been neglected and forgotten. After all of the pain and suffering they have endured in their lives, we leave them on the street at 18. We all believe in second chances, but these youth never even received their first. These are our kids, our sons and daughters, brothers and sisters. We are one, America, let’s start acting like it.

Children in foster care have never had stable housing, a job,a stable person to care for them, or show them life skills. The mission of the We Are One Project is to take foster youth who are aging out, and show them the bright side to life. How do we do this? We don’t believe in fixing one problem, but as many as possible. Our 6 step program includes:

 

  1. Assigning a Mentor in desired field.

  2. Therapy sessions twice weekly.

  3. Weekly classes based on life skills.

  4. Job placement in desired field.

  5. Help through College.

  6. Stable Housing.
