New Program Helps Young Adults


A new collaborative effort to help young adults leaving foster care find housing is already making an impact.  Here is the story from The Hope Center at Pullen:

<<We don’t think it is a coincidence that on the first day of warm, sunny weather that we’ve had in weeks Shana moved into her new apartment.  Shana, a former foster care child, is the first participant in a new collaborative between The Hope Center at Pullen, PLM Families Together (a non-profit focused on ending homelessness) and Wake Tech Fostering Bright Futures (a program that addresses the educational needs of foster care students specifically).  This collaborative, supported by the United Way of the Greater Triangle, provides young people aging out of foster care in Wake County with increased access and opportunities to critical, life-changing services.  And Shana was able to tap into those resources and work with The Hope Center at Pullen and PLM Families Together to find exactly the right living situation for her.  “Getting into my own apartment makes me think of the saying, ‘good things come to those that wait.’ I’ve been waiting and not moving too fast because now I have people here to help me.”  We couldn’t be happier for Shana and are tremendously proud of her accomplishments.>>
