The youth we serve not only come from broken homes, they are often victims of violence and abuse long before they enter the foster care system. They long for family, yet they have major bonding, attachment, and trust issues. Upon turning 18, most are unaware of the huge responsibilities that accompany their emancipation. Immediately, they are responsible for completely managing their lives, however, a majority of them are not emotionally or financially ready for this stark transition.
To make matters worse, they often exit the foster care system with unmet basic needs such as food, clothing and shelter, and opportunities for employment. Most lack the needed skills or work experience to enter the workforce. This is why Compassion Planet exists and it is what we do well.
