Humble Dreams Alliance
The Humble Dreams Alliance empowers teens and young adults transitioning out of care to succeed in higher education and entrepreneurial pursuit.
- Over 23,000 youth age out of the foster care system each year.
- Over 50% of young adults will fail to find or maintain employment after aging out of foster care, and those who do typically earn significantly below the poverty line.
- 1 in 4 youth exiting foster care experience homelessness within 4 years of emancipation
- Despite having the same aspirations as peers of higher socioeconomic status, youth living in uncertainty are more likely to struggle academically due to financial instability, housing insecurity, physical and emotional neglect, and mental health issues.
