OUR MISSION:

Giving a voice to teens in foster care

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.

~ Proverbs 31:8-9

Our Vision

To ADVOCATE for the children and teens in foster care, EDUCATE the public on the problems with the foster care system and EMPOWER teens in foster care to tell their stories in an inspiring way and be an instrument of change for others in the foster care system.

ADVOCATE

Publicly supports or recommends a particular cause or policy. “Champion, Supporter, Backer, Promoter, Spokesman, Fighter”

EDUCATE

To give intellectual, moral, and social instruction to. “Coach, Train, Instruct, Tutor, Teach”

EMPOWER

To give power or authority. “Accredit, Certify, Invest”

Our long term goal is to make aged out youth in foster care become the biggest instruments of change for the foster care system.

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will.

~ Romans 12:2

Our goal is to break the generational cycle of abuse, neglect, and homelessness so that the lives of current and former foster youth can be enhanced.

Back to Basics brings the love of God to abused, neglected, and forgotten people. We provide healthy, loving relationships, and address individual spiritual, emotional, and material needs. 

CASA volunteers serve as the “eyes and ears” for the judge in child welfare cases. This includes researching each child’s situation and making objective recommendations to help them reclaim their childhoods from abuse and neglect. 

Community Youth Outreach’s programs are designed to provide food, clothing, safety, security, sense of belonging, prestige and feelings of accomplishment, empowering youth to reach their fullest potential.

Love Foster’s Hope’s goal is to impact the lives of children and teens in foster care who have been abused, neglected or abandoned through mentoring, summer camps and walking through life with them.
