~ Vision and Mission ~
We envision a community in which all young adults, especially those transitioning out of NC Foster Care are able to "ASK" (Access Support and Knowledge) necessary to possess a renewed and re-energized outlook on life; while living as productive, fulfilled and contributing citizens of our society.
Our mission is to create a supportive and nurturing environment for young adults,especially those aging out of the NC Foster Care System by providing essential social and financial support, along with quality preparation for their successful transition to adulthood.
What Exactly Is Foster Care?
Foster care is temporary care for children who have the ultimate goal of returning home to their birth parents or other relatives. Foster parents play a vital role in understanding the needs of the children during these difficult times, and their help, intervention, and nurturing can make all the difference to a child in need."
What I would say about Foster Care
What I would like to say about Foster Care is that kids should have better people to care for them,and treat you as their own child. I wished I would have been able to go on family trips and special occasion trips with my Foster family but that did not happen with me.
I had a classmate to come to me for support when her father died, all I could say was "you are lucky you still have your mother,I didn't have my mom or a dad." I can say now I was lucky enough to be adopted by a family member and I'm thankful.
