Kym Kares is a nonprofit organization created for the specific purpose of promoting economic growth and independence of disadvantaged young women who have aged out of the foster care system
Former foster youth are among the highest risk population of becoming homeless during their young adult years. Our goal is to provide transitional housing to help bridge the gap between foster-care housing and adulthood.
Without guidance, encouragement and resources foster-care teens are unprepared to make the transition from foster care to self-sufficient adulthood. Within 18 months 40-50% become homeless and unemployed; Kym Kares is dedicated to helping these young women achieve success and find gainful employment by proving job seeking skills.
Kym Kares provides foster youth with the life skills needed to transition from foster-care to adulthood. We help foster youth improve their physical and emotional health which are often necessary first steps on the road to self-sufficiency.
