Greensboro-area foundations support foster youth aging out of state custody

February 25, 2013

More than 60 children age out of foster care every year in Guilford and surrounding counties in North Carolina. Youth Villages’ Transitional Living program is designed to significantly reduce the risk of homelessness, poverty and illegal behavior among these young adults.

Learn more about the success of the TL program across multiple states and communities in the recently published Transitional Living 10-year Report.

Budget cuts and increased competition for funds have made it challenging to annually serve 36 youth across the Greensboro area. Fortunately, Youth Villages’ positive and lasting results earned the attention and subsequent generosity of several North Carolina foundations.

Thanks to the following foundations for their generous support of the Transitional Living program in the Greensboro area:

  • Bank of America Charitable Foundation
  • The Cemala Foundation
  • Richard W. Jennings Foundation
  • Nancye F. Markle Charitable Trust
  • Sisters of Mercy of North Carolina
  • Hillsdale Fund

Their combined support has allowed Youth Villages to continue serving Greensboro youth as they make a successful transition from foster care to adulthood.
