Safety Net InlandNW is here to help.
Safety Net is the helping hand for our local teens and young adults who have aged out of Foster Care.
These foster teens need to know someone is out there who will help unconditionally with their most basic needs. They need time to finish growing up. Safety Net is that support. We meet them where they are. With us, they understand that we care and want nothing more than to see them succeed in life.
What We Do
Consider this situation that many kids are facing. They are turning 18 in November of their senior year of high school. They’re not thinking about the upcoming holiday events, shopping at the mall with their friends, or wondering if they will be going to the winter formal or Friday night’s basketball game. Their concerns run quite deeper. They are counting down the days until they are out of foster care and need to make it on their own. These kids are pondering such questions as: When the state stops sending a check where am I going to live? How will I get to school and what will I be eating? These foster teens need to know someone is out there who will help unconditionally with their most basic needs. They need time to finish growing up.
What you can do
