Every donation makes an immediate impact on youth in foster care.
THE COST OF DOING NOTHING
Youth who age out of the foster care system are more likely than their peers to drop out of school, become parents before they are ready, experience homelessness, or end up in jail—costly consequences that affect all Americans. On average, for every young person who ages out of the foster care system, taxpayers and communities and pay $300,000 is social costs over that person’s lifetime.
Our name is derived from the Ghanan term nsoromma, meaning “children of the heavens.” We believe that youth in foster care–with so few blood ties they can claim–are part of a more divine family.Our name is always spelled with a lowercase “n” as a constant reminder that what matters most is our accountability to these “children of the heavens.”
