Every year over 20,000 children age out of foster care in the U.S.
In Alabama between 300 - 500 children leave care annually.
The majority of those children will not have a caring supportive adult to turn to and 60% of those children will leave care without identified housing and become immediately homeless. That homelessness leads to unemployment, incarceration, human and sex trafficking and the repeated generational cycle of foster care.
More About Second Shift
Second Shift changes the trajectory to sustainable and connected independence.
Second Shift connects them to trained stable and caring adults and assists with housing, expenses, life skill education and resources.
Linking to the life of a youth leaving foster care changes the trajectory of their life. Second Shift prevents homelessness, unemployment, incarceration, human and sex trafficking and the repeated generational cycle of foster care. This interrupts the predicted outcomes and give these children a future.
