Transforming young people’s lives and transforming the fabric of our society.
That’s what your dollars achieve.
There are many reasons to give. Here are just three:
- Your dollars help transform the lives of young people in foster care when they are able to have the permanent, loving support of forever families.
- By helping to transform the lives of young people across New York City, you are not only building families, but also positively changing the fabric of our society – with more and more youth on the path to achieving their potential.
- Your donation also saves the nation millions of dollars. The cost of keeping New York teens in foster care is high, from $21,400 per year for each youth with minimal challenges to more than $150,000 for those with special needs. Contrast this with the average one-off costs of $10,000-$15,000 for finding a permanent family.
Every dollar that you donate to You Gotta Believe is used to fund the caseworkers, trainings, and care that we your-cholesterol-faq.com ensure that as many youth in foster care as possible are not left without the one thing that they were promised when they entered care: a family.
