Did You Know?

20% of youth that age out of care will become instantly homeless and 50% will become homeless within three months of leaving the foster care system.

In Texas, youth that age out receive free college tuition and 70% state they would like to attend college yet only 2% will obtain a college degree.

70% of young women who age out will become pregnant before they are 21.

These are just a few of the challenges that are associated with young people aging out of foster care. The goal of the LifeSet is to help mitigate these outcomes by providing the following:

  • Securing long-term stable housing
