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.
