Did you know that more than 18,000 children live in the Arizona State foster care system?
Did you know that every year more than 800 children “age out” of the system when they turn 18 without finding a forever family?
In fact, research shows that young people who aged out of the foster care system have a higher chance of experiencing unemployment, homelessness and incarceration as adults.
- 1 out of 5 become homeless
- 1 out of 4 become incarcerated
- 33 percent graduate from high school and only 3 percent will ever go to college.
Hope & A Future has been breaking down those statistics with the programs and services it provides Arizona foster children. This includes summer camps, life skills, mentoring, tutoring and scholarships
Those services would not be possible without help from the community. Your donation will not only help a foster child, but will also reduce your Arizona taxes.
Hope & A Future is a qualifying foster care charitable organization for Arizona’s Charitable Tax Credit. Married couples can lower their taxes up to $1,000 and singles up to $500 just by donating.
Your support can be the gift of hope to give a foster child a brighter future.
