Benefiting Charity: Embrace, helping kids "aging-out" of foster care
Each year thousands of young adults ages 17-21 "age out" of the foster care system without having been adopted. Many of these teens leave their foster homes with little more than the clothes on their backs.
Embrace provides basic household items to these young adults to help them get the best possible start in independent living. Each kit contains items such as dishes, cooking utensils, bath towels, cleaning supplies and more. These items are collected by churches, community groups, sports teams, businesses and individuals across the state.
