Individual and Family Mentors
Current and former foster youth and young adults who are without permanent families can benefit from caring and committed adults willing to support them in various ways. Your time, talents and treasures can help youth and young adults succeed.
Consider sharing your experience and expertise with youth in need. Having someone with whom they can communicate and confide in can make a world of difference in their lives.
Life Skills Training and Support
Youth and young adults in foster care, or those who are considered at-risk, are often in need of life skills training and support.
At Family Roots, we facilitate life skills training such as:
Because of the multiple transitions youth in foster care often experience, there are often few tangible memories they have as they grow older.
Life Books are beneficial to help youth not only preserve childhood memories, but also fill-in-the-blanks of often lost memories. They can also help youth answer questions about their past enabling an enhanced sense of self, thus understanding their place and purpose in the world.
Life Books can be both sentimental and therapeutic.
Consider making a donation here DONATE TODAY to support this endeavor. Or, consider becoming a Life Book Volunteer and make a positive difference in the life of a child in foster care.
We believe in acknowledging and supporting individuals at all phases of life. This includes celebrating our centenarians - those who have been blessed to reach 100 years and beyond!
We provide a special gift and recognition to those centenarians who have reached this accomplished and rare milestone!
If you know of a soon-to-be or existing centenarian, someone who has or is about to celebrate his or her 100th birthday, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or fill out an online application: Get Started.
