Driving towards success!
Jerry is an intelligent 17-year-old teenage boy and is the oldest of five siblings. Prior to entering foster care, Jerry was held in a juvenile detention center due to the theft and organized crime his father made him participate in. Now, he has found great foster parents who give him the guidance he needs. He is excelling in school and continues to live a healthy lifestyle. Since he makes straight A's and has been accepted into college; his child placing agency, foster parents and Foster Angels decided to help him purchase his first car! This is a life changing event that Jerry will never forget and we were so happy to assist him as he transitions into adulthood!

This summer Foster Angels partnered again with Youth Odyssey to provide an opportunity for foster children to attend several different adventure camps. The camps consisted of Horseback riding, backpacking through the woods, canoeing, cooking lessons, rope swings, camping, exploring and so much more! The youth attending gained an increase in the development of six life core skills: problem solving, leadership, trust, self-esteem, teamwork and communication skills. The goal of Youth Odyssey is to assist youth in successfully navigating through their lives into a brighter future by overcoming their present circumstances!
