Our mission is to equip young women who have aged out of foster care to live with purpose and freedom.
We believe everyone is uniquely created with value, and designed to live with purpose. Our circumstances do not determine our future.
We are defined by our redemption, not our past.
At Hope and Vine we know that young women who have aged out of foster care want to be thriving adults. In order to do that, they need support to be self-sustaining and to develop healthy relationships.
The problem is they were set up for failure which can make them feel inadequate to overcome obstacles.
Here’s how we do it:
- We offer Employment through the Hope + Vine shop and Connection to needed resources.
- Through authentic relationships, they receive mentorship and the support they need.
- They gain the tools to become confident adults.
We believe no one’s past should trap them in a future they don’t want. We understand these young women are navigating difficult circumstances while feeling alone which is why we offer a place where they can feel safe and become the person they want to be.
We invite you to support a young woman, and we hope you will connect with us to learn ways you can make an impact.
These young women don’t have to remain trapped in the cycle of trauma. Instead, with your support, they can find the freedom to thrive.
