Our Impact

We will provide barrier-free access in education and housing, promote the power of our student’s voice, teach skills that aid in building supportive relationships and community connections, and encourage positive expectations for the future. Collectively, we have:

  • Provided program participants over $80,000 in emergency funds, incentives, and other financial assistance to remove any barriers to education.

  • Supported 22 college-bound docket participants to transition to higher education

  • Empowered youth and young adults with a lived experience to find and use their voice; to engage in advocacy and action that improves education and life outcomes and collaborate with other emerging leaders to promote systemic change.

  • Increased public awareness and stakeholder engagement at local, state, and national levels through presentations, conferences, media campaigns, and action plans.

  • Developed the Housing First Project to assist youth and young adults not eligible for extended foster care or SIL, are experiencing homelessness, and pursue their college degree at our institutions.
