U.S. Kids a Year Leave Foster Care without a Forever Home
We invest in the future of America's most vulnerable youth.
At Finally Family Homes, we partner with youth exiting foster care without a family to build a brighter future. We know that making the transition to adulthood is a struggle that is intensified for young people who have spent even some of their childhood in foster care.
We support our youth by:

A Caring and Sustainable Approach
We recognize the importance of healthy relationships to youth success. So, we invite our young adults, who transitioned out of foster care, to belong in a community that’s invested in building lasting connections with them.
We believe in the potential of the youth we serve, not offering a handout, but a hand to hold. We come alongside our young adults as they build to own their own tiny homes on wheels, laying the foundation for a better economic future.
We understand that the risk factors for our youth are complex. By nurturing personal development and offering a safety net of continued support, we mitigate the future risks for homelessness and human trafficking.
Our primary goal is to connect former foster youth to a caring community while guiding them to build an economic foundation for themselves.
Knowing that safe and secure housing is their top need, we offer a long-term solution through tiny homeownership and a caring solution in host homes while they work to build a life and a home for themselves. Along the way, we offer a variety of wrap-around services to holistically enrich our young adults and give them an extra edge on success in life.
Taking on Challenges
Making A Difference
At Finally Family Homes, we take challenges head-on. In spite of the pandemic, we served more youth than ever through 2020. We provided over 50 youth in need with a variety of services including helping to cover basic needs items like groceries, face masks, and school supplies. We brought turkey dinners at Thanksgiving and presents at Christmas.
We brought speakers in over zoom to inspire, encourage, and motivate them through the difficulties. And we offered many opportunities to connect during a time of isolation.
