Ring Broken by a Timecard A Job Could Save a Life

A house that was once a home.. now stands as a door encapsulating memories.

Age 18 for foster children equates to the very real possibility of homelessness and abandonment.

They were never taught life skills. They were never taught how to survive.
Alone. Vulnerable. Desperate. For love. For money. For security. For normalcy.

"You're unloved.

Unwanted.

Property.

YOU DESERVE THIS."

Caught in a ring of a desire to run and no place to run to, these girls stand still.

But the question is, can this be prevented? Can these traffickers be stopped?

Adding another system after age 18 is stripping these girls of all independence, working as a crutch not a stepping stone.
Teach these girls how to survive. Teach these girls how to provide for themselves.

Have a job established for fostered girls before they are emancipated.

Accountability
Means for a living

A girl who could be subject to the hands of a broken man...

Now has the chance to make a life for herself.
