Mission Statement

The mission of Aegis Foundation, Inc. is to enhance the lives of young people by financially supporting organizations that provide safe, supportive environments and specialize in youth services, alternative education, life skills, vocational training, homelessness, pregnancy, STD and HIV/AIDS prevention, and other youth related concerns.


Description

We, Aegis Foundation are committed to work as the voice for the vulnerable, needy, underserved, and imperiled youth. In the U.S. alone, Half of all new HIV infections are believed to occur in people ages 11-23. Runaways and other homeless young people are at high risk for HIV infection if they are exchanging sex for drugs or money. Many of these children will face issues such as sexual/physical/emotional abuse, illiteracy, leaving school, pregnancy, disease, and crime, and drug abuse/addiction and death.

These issues often lead to youth having low self-worth and low self-confidence. By financially supporting organizations that specialize in addressing these youth issues, Aegis Foundation believes we can reclaim the shaping of today’s seemingly forgotten youth by giving them back their livelihoods, getting them off the streets and back into supportive environments. We work in conjunction with these organizations to support and motivate these children to give them back what’s left of their childhood and prepare them for a healthy, responsible, and productive life. We take a special interest in serving and partnering with our local communities
