Help End Youth Homelessness

Want to join me in making a difference?
I'm raising money to help in the start up costs of a social enterprise coffee shop in Penrith, NSW. 
The coffee shop will not only aid in the sustainability of the charity but it will also provide employment pathways for vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in Western Sydney.
FCA Inc run a number of programs that benefit young people exiting foster care who have been identified as one of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged groups in society.  FCA Inc are committed to ending the cycle of homelessness, criminal justice, unemployment and welfare dependency faced by many young people exiting foster care in NSW.45586402_1582079215622183_r.jpeg
The statistical outcomes for this cohort are particularly poor as shown below:
* 35% homeless in first year compared to 1% of general population,

* 65% have not completed year 12 compared to 21% of general population,

* Almost 50% of males and 20% of females have had contact with the criminal justice system compared to just 0.05% of general population,

* 29% are unemployed compared to the National average of 9.75%,

* 28% are already parents, around 3 times more likely than their peers. These babies are also 2.2 times more likely to be taken into foster care.

By helping FCA Inc set up the social enterprise you are contributing to their sustainability and ability to support these young people.

Thank you for your support.  You are making a difference.
