Statistics for Aged out foster youth
7 in 10 girls who age out of foster care will be pregnant by 21
60% will end up in the sex industry
1 in 4 will end up incarcerated within two years of aging out.
These numbers dramatically decrease with transitional housing and support provided by organizations like the Rise Home for women and children.
We will provide transitional housing with a 12 month program for self sufficiency. We will offer emotional, spiritual, and physical support.
