BUILDING HOPE FOR FOSTER CHILDREN, HOMELESS YOUTH AND FAMILIES
ACROSS OUR REGION, THERE ARE AS MANY AS 2,000 HOMELESS YOUTH AND FAMILIES ON ANY GIVEN DAY.
Their circumstances are all unique, but their need for a supportive community is undeniable. More than 25 percent of former foster children will become homeless within two to four months of leaving the system. The sense of hopelessness and despair can be overwhelming and the impacts can be far greater than the immediate, visible effects.
At Place of Hope at the Leighan and David Rinker Campus, we are committed to strengthening families and ensuring the well-being of homeless young adults and human trafficking survivors in our community. With their primary need of housing met, these individuals and families are offered the skills and support necessary to live with dignity, independence and stability. We are providing a supportive and proactive living and learning environment and want to end the cycle of homelessness.
