Our Founder's Story
I have worked with teens in foster care at the amazing Carrie Steele Pitts Group Home in Atlanta for several years. As I've gotten to know and admire these young people, I've been struck by the ways in which they seem to go into every situation at a disadvantage (emotionally, academically and vocationally).
In wanting to do more to support these teens, I enrolled several of them in classes that aligned with their passion or hobby. I observed that they went into these environments from a place of strength and confidence and have also been more disposed to learning.
I strongly believe that everyone has something positive to offer the world, a strength or a unique quality that when nurtured can grow into a skill that differentiates them from everyone else.
Wanting to learn more about the foster system I started to do some research. In my research I could not find any existing organization or program that identifies and builds upon the strengths these young people already have.
I started this nonprofit to continue this work of supporting foster youth and increase the number of teens I am able to serve. These young adults deserve a fair shot to live their best lives, to find their purpose and to leave their mark on the world.
They deserve to be more than a foster care statistic.
