ASOH Mission: 
Creating homes for youth who have aged out of foster care thanks to furniture donations & love-in-action volunteerism

Impact: A staggering 30% of the homeless population are youth who have exited foster care. There are between 20,000 – 35,000 youth “aging-out” of the foster care system each year. Seven out of ten girls aging-out have children of their own. ASOH creates over 100 per year with your help. We have created over 350 homes and has placed over 1000 beds for those who need it most. 

Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities:  When you sponsor a Home Creation you and your team unload the A Sense of Home truck - then design the home! Volunteers will work together deciding placement of items and art in under 90 minutes. 

Requirements: All volunteers must sign our volunteer waiver. There is the possibilty of stairs at Home Creations - unfortunately because we are going to apartments and homes all over LA County we cannot ensure they are ADA Accessible - however we do try to match a home based on the needs of the sponsor. 
* Any volunteer under the age of 18 will need to bring and have signed by a parent/guardian a Volunteer Agreement & Release for Minors. The form can be found on L.A. Works website Q&A section.
 

Sponsoring a Home: Many corporations sponsor home creations where they gain a one of a kind corporate team building experience. Whether it is once a year or once a month. One corporate partner, Snap Inc— sends between two and four teams each and every month.  

Home Creations are a unique experience where your team (4-22) comes in and creates a gorgeous first home for a former foster youth.  At 11am a team arrives to create a sense of home for an aged-out foster youth and depart by 1pm. In 90 minutes, not only does the team change a life by creating a home for a deserving youth, their corporate team is transformed by the experience. It’s an opportunity to witness the best in one another while seeing how much a team can achieve together, in such a short period. Snap Chat comes up to 4 times a month and values this as a unique team building experience. Sponsorships are $5,000, this includes A Sense of Home bringing all the furniture, bedding, decor, and dishware for the home creation, catered lunch, and photos/video of the Home Creation.
