Beginning in 2011, Compassion Planet offers help, hope and practical tools to at-risk teens and aged-out foster youth (ages 18+) in the greater Sacramento area. We are dedicated to enacting both proven and creative ways to address individual needs through multiple resources and "best fit" plans for our young people. Whether a participating trainee or volunteer, we highly value, respect and welcome all people. Our goal is to empower underserved young adults, by equipping them to reach their full potential,.
From the onset, our programs have addressed a wide range of social challenges and holistic needs. This has allowed us to collaborate with local municipalities and area nonprofits to achieve our goals. Specifically, we address needs such as hunger, clothing, housing, life skills, mentoring, and employment, within a family-like structure. We also provide advocacy and awareness to the enormous obstacles faced by emancipated foster youth.
