Young Lives Redeemed

Young Lives Redeemed provides intensive and comprehensive support services to homeless former foster youth, including connection to trauma-informed mental healthcare, substance abuse treatment, sustainable housing, secondary and post-secondary education, vocational programming, job training and employment. We serve a highly vulnerable population - homeless 18-25 year-old "aged out" foster youth - who are no longer in the foster care system, and therefore not eligible to receive services from organizations which serve current foster youth. Every year, approximately 150 foster youth age out of the foster care system in Orange County alone. Most will end up homeless before turning 21. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, we have seen an influx of youth seeking our services. Our program provides shelter, safety and stability, and produces self-sufficiency.

We are looking for volunteers to support our efforts. Volunteer positions are immediately available in the areas of mentoring youth in our program, assisting in the management of our social media, and assisting in the management of our databases. Volunteers are able to serve during the pandemic due to our observance of social distancing.

Mission Statement

Young Lives Redeemed (YLR) seeks to empower transitional-age emancipated foster youth (ages 18-26) to overcome trauma-induced mental illness and addiction by facilitating engagement in mental healthcare and addiction recovery.

Description

YLR is a non-profit organization committed to helping emancipated foster youth achieve success. We facilitate the support and treatment these youth need in order to help them overcome trauma-induced mental illness and addiction. Our goal is to stem the tide of the thousands of emancipated foster youth who each year needlessly fall through society's cracks due to mental illness and addiction, and lack of access to treatment.

By treating mental illness and addiction concurrently, we can stabilize the lives of these youth so that they can go on to achieve healthy relationships, college educations and self-sustaining employment - avoiding their current plight of homelessness, incarceration and institutionalization.
