Meet M! M is an almost 18-year-old young lady who has been in foster care for almost 5 years. M graduated high school early this year and has applied to community college to pursue a degree in elementary education. M wants to be a school teacher so that she can help children and make a difference. M also loves doing hair and plans to do this as a side job. M has been working at the same job for almost two years now.
M has been accepted into an independent living program. Through this program she is going to be moving into her own apartment this month. She plans to save money throughout her time in this program so that she has enough for a down payment on a condo when she ages out of foster care in three years time.
During her time in foster care, M has learned a lot about how to cope in healthy ways and make choices toward success. M is grateful for the people who help support foster youth like her!
M is in need of items for living on her own in her new apartment. Items can be purchased from our Amazon wish list and shipped directly to Fostering Futures. Just click the link below.
Monetary donations can also be made to help us support our young adult. Any monetary donations made during March will be put toward purchasing large items from our Young Adult's Amazon List or grocery gift cards. If you would like to purchase a grocery gift card and mail or deliver it, please contact Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
