Do you care that there are currently more than 400,000 children in foster care in the United States? Every year 26,000 turn 18 and "age out" of the system. Here is what happens next: By age 19, 26% will have been incarcerated and 33% will be without a high school diploma or GED. By age 21, only 1% will complete college. 26% will have been homeless. 26% will have attempted suicide. 31% will have been arrested. 71% of the females will have been pregnant. These are the forgotten youth of America. But there is an opportunity to break this cycle and improve their future. What is the solution?
Just Care More is a 501(c)(3) Tax-Exempt Organization helping foster youth living in group homes overcome adversity by creating opportunities for them to participate in new experiences so they can find their passions, learn practical skills and build community. All activities are designed to teach the youth life skills and lessons that they will not learn while in the foster care system. With Just Care More's help, kids are able to go on outings such as indoor skydiving, rock climbing, kayaking, hiking, running, surfing, off roading, and more,, enabling them to rise above the statistics that are not in their favor.

Just Care More purchased 40 acres of raw land in the hills of San Diego county which will be the home of Camp Care More. The camp is unique because the kids will work side by side with Just Care More’s founders and team members to build the camp. The goal is to have the kids help develop the vision and participate in building the physical environment so they develop a sense of purpose and belonging. This is one step of them building a community for themselves, something many of them have never experienced before. The opportunity to work side-by-side with Just Care More team members will also afford them the opportunity to learn valuable life skills such as planning, job costing, sourcing material, operating power tools, cooking and how to exercise properly.Why do we need your help?
