The white picket fence that protects your brick and mortar can be swept away in storms or knocked down with even a divorce, or job loss. In the United States, whoever has the house with the most square footage, seems to be happy, but are they? We’ve become so spoiled with our square footage in the United States that it’s almost ridiculous. You know what else is ridiculous; no place to go after aging out of the Foster Care system.
If you’re between 15 years old to 24 you might crash at a friend’s house for a bit, sleep outside as long as you can or be lucky enough to get into a crowded shelter. There is a nonprofit that’s a few years old by the name of Feelingthropic Inc that is getting out on the streets of Charlotte, North Carolina, raising the bar by assisting precious teens. These young adults receive blankets, hoodies, food, and other necessities. State Farm Insurance company awarded Feelingthropic with a grant to help with their worthy efforts with young adults.
If you find yourself in need of help, Feelingthropic has created a page of resources for you. If you have time please consider volunteering with a nonprofit like Feelingthropic. Can you imagine being out on your own with no one to trust? Become a mentor here.
