Meet "A", our October Young Adult of the Month!
"A" is a very humble, 19-year-old woman, who has spent the last four years in foster care. Ten years ago, "A"’s mother passed away and she has no relationship with her biological father. Although "A" would like to have a relationship with him, his whereabouts are unknown. "A" and her sibling were adopted by their uncle after their mother’s passing. They lived with this uncle and their grandmother. Unfortunately, four years ago, "A" and her sibling were placed in foster care after reports were made of physical and emotional abuse in the home. "A" was placed in a foster home and decided she wanted to live on her own after graduating high school. "A" currently resides in her own apartment through a transitional living program. She is doing extremely well and is a determined, motivated young woman. "A" is employed at a nursing home and is currently working toward her certification as a CNA. After that, "A" aspires to continue her education in nursing. After much hard work, "A" was able to purchase a car and keeps it insured. "A" does well in her transitional living program and continues to work on budgeting. She will age out of foster care on her 21st birthday and is working hard to prepare for that time.
"A" is in need of a lot of items for her apartment, including a couch, night stands, bedding, kitchen supplies, and cleaning supplies. All of these items are on her Amazon Wish List, or a monetary donation can be made to be put toward her larger, more expensive items.
"A" would also appreciate any gas cards and gift cards for clothing. Please see our "Donate" page to contact one of our drop off locations to deliver these items.
Items can be purchased from "A"'s 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.
