Without the consistent support of family to guide them in developing life skills, many will fall prey to homelessness, unemployment, and poverty. The statistics are staggering. 40% of former foster kids will experience homelessness, 25% will be arrested or incarcerated, 54% will drop out of high school, and fewer than 5% will earn a bachelors degree. Join us for an open conversation to learn how HopeWell is helping foster kids beat the odds and providing the tools they need to reach their full potential in school, work, and life.
