Growing up as a child can feel like rainbows and skittles, just a blast of fun with no real worries. It’s not until you reach your senior year of high school you notice things being to switch and adulthood becomes a real thing. Imagine the thoughts of a teen who is also in the foster care and have no real family support, What support do they have then?

Let’s give a huge shoutout to Columbus City Council for dedicating $5.6 million dollars to support the housing for teens transition out of foster care. According to NBC4i.com, the city entered into a contract with Affordable Housing Trust Of Columbus and Franklin County to make financial assistance available.
Organizations like Star House which is a 24/7 drop-in center for homeless youth in the community will benefit from this contract as well. Star House is already seeking to transform a vacant motel into 100 affordable efficiency apartments for at-risk teen exiting out of foster care.
We love it! Helping one homeless person at a time!
