At age 18 were you ready to do life ?
Of course not!!!
There is still so much to be learned at that age and God did not intend for us to do life alone. At age 18 many of the supports for youth aging out of foster care end or become very limited, leaving them essentially alone to navigate the transition from childhood/adolescents to adulthood. Many that age out of foster care and state custody have limited skills for the adult world. As a former foster youth clearly explained, “we are not equipped to go through this world alone.”
L.A.M.B’s Place is a non-profit organization that is here to bridge the gap for these youth. Our mission is to provide affordable, transitional housing for youth, ages 18-25, who are aging out of the foster care system and/or have had adverse childhood experiences, in a Christ-centered atmosphere with opportunities for spiritual growth.
