Meet F, our May Young Adult of the Month!
F is a 19 year-old young woman who has spent the last 4 years in foster care. She will age out of foster care on her 21st birthday. Over these years, F has shown a work ethic that is uncommon to someone in her situation. F has always held down a job and found ways to scrape by with what little she earns. Over the past year and a half, F has been busy working through a Transitional Living Program and moved up to an Independent Living Program with her own apartment. In the past month F has made several strides to becoming an adult. After years of resistance to therapy, she made the decision on her own to go to a therapist regularly. F also recently got her first job outside of the food service and retail industries at an insurance agency. F loves animal, and recently rescued a puppy.
F's biggest struggle right now is transportation. Aside from her wish list, we are hoping to collect monetary donations to put toward Uber gift cards for F. Uber is currently her primary means of transportation to and from work. F has also been to an orthodontist recently and would be grateful for any financial assistance toward braces.
F will begin college courses this coming semester. She aspires to obtain a degree in either nursing or child development.
F is in need of some items for her first apartment, including furniture items, bedding, toiletries, and household necessities. We are also hoping to raise money to put towards Uber gift cards for F, as well as money to contribute to her orthodontic bills. Items can be purchased from her Amazon wish list and shipped directly to Fostering Futures. Monetary donations can be made at the bottom of this page via Paypal or on our Facebook page.
Your support and contributions will help us to purchase needed items for our young adult of the month. Help us give this young person a positive start as they prepare to age out of foster care.
