The mission of Safety Net is to support former foster youth in their critical post-foster care years. That means helping them with the resources to stay in school, receive job training and handle minor financial emergencies.

What is Safety Net?

Consider this situation that many kids are facing. They are turning 18 in November of their senior year of high school. They’re not thinking about the upcoming holiday events, shopping at the mall with their friends, or wondering if they will be going to the winter formal or Friday night’s basketball game. Their concerns run quite deeper. They are counting down the days until they are out of foster care and need to make it on their own. These kids are pondering such questions as: When the state stops sending a check where am I going to live? Who is going to help me finish my homework? How will I get to school and what will I be eating? These foster teens need to know someone is out there who will help unconditionally with their most basic needs.They need time to finish growing up.
