A place where displaced youth can call home.
Every child doesn't grow up with a loving family and a home to call their own. There are currently more than 400,000 children in foster care in the US. Have you ever wondered where they go once they have turned 18?
While you may not think of this, children within the system think of this quite often as the date gets closer. Luckily, displaced youth can get assistance at our Transitional Independent Living Facility also known as Carlee’s Village of Hope. The facility offers a place called home for young adults between the ages of 18 to 23. Once again, we've made it our mission for everyone to have a place they can call home!
How It Started?
Carlee's Village of Hope began 4 years ago in support of one of our favorite volunteers. Oasis of Hope is always looking to make a difference and we value our volunteers because they help us make a bigger impact. One volunteer, in particular, outshined the others due to his time commitment.
It wasn't long before we learned that our shining star was actually homeless. He had just turned 18 which means he aged out of foster care and had nowhere else to go. From that moment forward, we made it our mission to help those often forgotten.
How It's Going?
Today, we are proud to say that we house 18 young adults under Carlee's Village of Hope program. Our goal is to support as many people as possible but we need your help to make it happen.
If you or someone you know needs assistance, please complete a rental application today. We look forward to assisting you.
