Foster Youth: Beyond The Necessities

Donations of all kinds for foster children are excellent. The most important donation of all is your personal time, caring, and compassion. One way to do this is through volunteerism. You can find out how to volunteer your time by calling 2-1-1 information, and asking about volunteering with foster youth, or using the internet and looking up http://www.211sandiego.org/ and search key words “volunteer foster youth”. One excellent way to volunteer your time would be though a foster youth mentor program. Below you will find some information to link you to San Diego County foster youth mentor program.

Good luck to all the foster children out there. If you’re feeling like life is a challenge, seek out trustworthy people to talk to, you are not alone, even though you might feel that way. One way for current or former foster youth to receive free therapeutic services is through a program called A Home Within, you can find information on this program on the internet at www.ahomewithin.org.
