THE PROBLEM

61K FOSTER YOUTH

There are 61,000 youth in foster care in California

50% come from LA County

California spends approximately $5 billion annually on foster care and related services

In the state of California, only 51% of transitional age foster youth have full or part time employment

72% of foster youth in California exit the system alone

A SEED IS PLANTED

We may be taking a risk, but the risk they take matters most.
