Every year more than 20,000 youth turn 18 years old and age out of foster care. More than 400 are in the State of Indiana. With limited to no resources most exit the system homeless, uneducated and lacking emotional and physical support to successfully move forward into the next phase of their lives.
Many homeless adolescent youth find exchanging sex for food, clothing and shelter are their only chance of survival on the streets.
Enriching Lives Aging Out Program is purposed to be a bridge to young girls, ages 18-24, that have transitioned out of the State of Indiana's foster care system.
Our Programs range from 12-18 months and upon its completion, a member will graduate with the education and life skills needed to become self sufficient in today's society.
