RunForHope supports The Faine House, where young men and women formerly in foster care are supported in five essential areas as they move toward independence: education, housing & transportation, employment, health & wellness and personal finance. Upon move-in, residents craft a Life Plan to guide their progress. The Faine House assists in their growth through the development of life skills that empowered them to enter our community as confident adults. The realities of for youth formerly in foster care are not good:
- 33% WILL BE HOMELESS WITHIN THREE YEARS
- 66% WILL DROP OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL
- 50% WILL BE UNEMPLOYED
- 60% WILL HAVE UNPLANNED BABIES WITHIN FOUR YEARS
