Did you know that 1,500 youth "phase out" of the foster care system each year in the state of Texas alone. Half of those young people will be homeless after their 18th birthday. About the same number will enter a life of drug or alcohol addiction and many of the girls will end up pregnant before their 20th birthday. It has become such an epidemic that the prison systems of America actually base their future population on the number of youth who "phase out" of foster care.
What is the Phased In Project?
The Phased In Project is a transitional living program for emancipated foster youth. The goal of the Phased In project is to assist these young adults in learning basic life skills that will prepare them for independent living that they did not learn while in foster care. Phased In will provide housing, education, medical care and life training through an 18 month program currently sponsored by the North Texas Dream Center. Through the combined partnership of the church, the community, and the State of Texas, the Phased In Project will embrace these youth who were never adopted to ensure that these young adults achieve self-sufficiency and stability. Finally, the Phased In Project will provide the most vital and missing dynamic in the lives of these young adults – Family. Our motto is "We go all out... so they can be all in."
Our Mission is to provide the unconditional love of a family through committed participation in the lives of emancipated foster youth.
Please give $18 to help with food, shelter and living expenses that will support our youth project for the next 18 months so that we can give back what they have lost over the last 18 years!
