Age Out Foster Care Dorms

When children age out of foster care, they become ineligible to receive state assistance with housing, food, and medical care under the foster care system. The federal government recognized that this, coupled with the fact that foster children typically already suffer ill-effects due to the lack of a stable home environment while growing up, was causing newly emancipated young adults to suffer higher rates of substance abuse, mental illness, teen pregnancy, homelessness, and arrests. Mostly these age out foster care teens become involved with Prostitution and become sex slaves. Every time I see a teenager on the corner asking for money, I wonder or do you wonder why this teenager asking for money? This program is not only for Native Americans but is open to every Young Foster Adult in need. This program will not only provide shelter, it will give every young adult a chance to finish school, along with being enrolled in some kind of continuing education. To be part of this program, every aged out foster young adult must  be enrolled in College or continuing education to be enrolled in this program.

The Aging Out Transition

In response to all the homeless teenager and young adults,Mission Creek Band of Mission Indians is seeking donations to create a A dormitory (dorm) or hall of residence or hostel to house these Teenagers or young adults so that they may have a chance to become a functioning adult. Most kids that are in foster care are only a meal ticket to some foster parents. When the money runs dry so does the care and home. The Young teenager is asked to vacate the home and is left to fend for themselves. Most young adults are already traumatized by the whole foster experiences. I know I was one of those foster kids.  

Mission Creek Band of Mission Indians seeks to build a three story Dormitory and would house over 150 young adults.
