Each year 20,000 foster youth will age out of foster care. Facing instant adulthood, thousands of foster youth must independently find housing, employment, feed and clothe themselves, with little to no support, often without a high school diploma, job experience, or a place to live.
With odds stacked against their success, Ticket to Dream's Take Flight program works with nonprofit partners and donors across the country to arm foster youth with support programs and resources that help them graduate, learn valuable life and job skills, obtain access to technology, have support systems, and access to safe housing.
This campaign, created by OnBuzz Media and Ticket to Dream for the award-winning movie Friday's Child, aims to shine a spotlight and inspire action to improve the futures of foster youth aging out of care.
Support for Ticket to Dream's Take Flight program will raise much needed funds for 4 key areas that statistically reduce homelessness, increase employment opportunities and decrease future incarceration, poverty and suicide rates. Simply we need to empower youth for success.
With your help we can grow, expand, and pour support into programs that impact futures. Every dollar helps.
