AGING OUT WITH HOPE
We provide services to youth aging out of the foster care system with much-needed resources. Our newest initiative is the Rise N Hope House - a safe haven providing them with housing, financial, educational, career consulting, and counseling. Our goal (with your support) is to purchase a home in Essex or Union County to help them integrate into the world with hope and opportunity.
I was in foster care since the age of 6 with no adoptive family when I met my worker Octavia Bradley. She went above and beyond to get me and my sister adopted into loving homes. She is an awesome person. She provided me with an opportunity to live a better life outside of foster care by linking me with resources that I needed, showing me how to budget my finances and filling out applications, and spent the necessary time with me to get the job done. She also helped me sought out the pain of my past so I could move forward in this world.
Hi Mrs. Bradley, I just want to say how much I appreciate you, When you I speak to you, I feel better. I am relieved, I read your quotes every day and practice what you taught me. I opened up a bank account because of you and I am also waiting for my inspection date. I will follow the check list that you gave me and I will not settle for anything less than what I deserve . Thank you for showing that. You are an amazing woman.
