To help foster youth overcome the challenges of growing up in the foster care system by providing guidance, support and advocacy in order to prepare them for life after foster care
THRU Project bridges the gap between growing up in foster care and aging out into adulthood. These youth are often alone with no adult to guide them through this critical time of transition. Many former foster youth end up pregnant, homeless or incarcerated. We recruit and train adult volunteers to serve as mentors. We offer the life skills training that many have never received; we help them get a job, apply for college, set up their first apartment, and navigate their finances. THRU Project assists youth in achieving their educational and workforce goals and as a partner of SA2020, we work towards making sure that youth become successful, thriving adults.
