Make a gift
Our “Permanency beyond Foster Care” Youth Program helps young people aged 13-24 who are living in or who have aged out of BC’s government care find an adoptive family or a permanent lifelong connection they can count on. For most young people, family is there to lend a hand with things like rent, groceries, and support as they make the first few steps into adulthood.
Unless they’ve been in foster care.
1,000 youth “age out" of government care each year, which means when a youth turns 19, all supports or services from the government foster care system, such as housing, social workers, outreach workers, and medical & dental support, effectively end. They will be on their own without a family to count on when they need advice, or to reach out to if they need help.
With your help, we are committed to working with youth to find permanency in their lives to prevent a life of struggle and tragedy.
Thank you for making the kind of gift and the type of difference that will last for a lifetime.
