Because of numerous distressing reasons, many children and youth in our community live in alternate homes away from their natural birth parents, including foster care and kinship care. These young people are at extreme risk of life-long poverty, homelessness, substance abuse, early death, and unproductive or under-productive lives. Thirty percent of male foster care alumni are incarcerated by 19 years of age. Nearly half of all girls who lived in foster care are pregnant by age 19, many producing children who join the cycle of abuse and neglect. Angel Reach is dedicated to helping these at-risk children and youth transition to better lives.
