Overview


Mission Statement

Young Lives Redeemed takes transitional-age emancipated foster youth from homelessness to stability and self-sufficiency through engagement in our Wellness Program, which includes connection to trauma-informed mental healthcare, substance abuse treatment, sustainable housing, secondary and post-secondary education, vocational programs, job training and employment. We envision a world where no former foster youth are living on the streets or incarcerated. We seek to change lives and create hope.


Background Statement

Our Executive Director has over 30 years experience working with at-risk youth.  He founded Young Lives Redeemed in 2014 to meet the most critical needs of this population for which there is a complete lack of services.

Impact Statement

(1) We serve homeless former foster youth through our Wellness Program.  This program consists of residential therapeutic treatment (stage one), outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment with structured sober living (stage two), and independent living and societal reintegration (stage three).  One of our clients, who entered our Wellness Program in 2016 after eight years of living on the streets, self-medicating with drugs, has phased through to independent living, is finishing coursework for his Human Services degree at a local California State University.  He is also working part-time.
(2) We continue to do outreach and engagement where local homeless youth congregate.  We have been working with many youth from the Santa Ana Riverbed, and experienced a large influx of clients when the County cleared the Riverbed of its homeless encampments.  It has been estimated that it takes approximately 14 contacts with an individual before he/she trusts a service provider enough to agree to seek services.  We are finding that youth agree to enter our program within three contacts on average.  We have an ongoing jail visit program where we counsel and connect with youth in order to start the healing process before they are released and returned to the streets.
(3) We continue our advocacy work to improve the outcomes for foster youth still in the system, and to increase the availability of services to emancipated foster youth.  Our Executive Director serves on several public and private committees and task forces relating to foster youth.
Our goal for the year is to place as many youths into our Wellness Program as we are able to, based on donations received.  We have a wait list due to lack of funds. 

Needs Statement

Funds to be used:
(1) To pay for residential therapeutic treatment.  We negotiate scholarships and discounted rates with our collaborative treatment providers.
(2) For structured sober living and outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment, so that our youth don't have to be homeless (and at serious risk of relapse).
(3) To subsidize transitional housing until our youth are stabilized financially.
(4) To pay for quality on-going trauma-informed therapy.
(5) To connect youth to living wage jobs and/or job training, so that they can become independent. 

CEO Statement

Only one to two percent of foster youth graduate from college despite the millions of dollars in financial resources (scholarships, grants, etc.) available. Estimates as high as 85% of foster youth will be homeless or incarcerated within two to three years of emancipation.  The number one cause of homelessness and incarceration, as well as the lack of success in post-secondary education, for these youth (other than an absence of a stable biological family unit) is unresolved childhood trauma and related self-medication, the exact problems Young Lives Redeemed addresses.

Board Chair Statement

Approximately 75% of inmates currently incarcerated were at one time in the child welfare system.  80% of inmates on death row were at one time in the child welfare system.  We can pay for these social ills now (at a fraction of the cost), or pay for them later.

Other Ways to Donate/Volunteer

Donations accepted of cash, check or grants. Donations also accepted of jobs or job training, housing, therapist hours or used automobiles, all for use by transitional age (18-26) emancipated foster youth.Volunteers are needed for fundraising efforts including social media updates/ presence.Board member opportunity: seeking additional board members with focus on grant writing and fundraising experience.

Programs


Wellness Program

Our three stage Wellness Program consists of: (1) inpatient care, simultaneously treating unresolved childhood trauma and related self-medication; (2) structured sober living and continuing mental healthcare; and (3) transition into independent living, which includes mentoring and life coaching, enrollment in school (including vocational programs), job training and/or living wage employment, and facilitating other required resources.
Budget  $24,000.00
Category  Human Services, General/Other Children & Youth Services
Population Served Alcohol, Drug, Substance Abusers Homeless People/Families with of People with Psychological Disabilities
Program Short-Term Success  We seek to heal those young people, who are panhandling on our street corners for change and crowding our jails, by getting them the mental healthcare they need to resolve their childhood trauma and overcome their substance addictions. 
Program Long-Term Success  Our goal is to reduce the shameful statistics that: (1) approximately 85% of foster youth end up homeless or incarcerated within two to three years of emancipation; and only one to two percent of foster youth graduate from college.
Program Success Monitored By  We track our youth after they complete inpatient treatment.  Success is achieved if they remain clean and sober, as well as housed and in school or employed.
Examples of Program Success  We are a new nonprofit.  While we have youth in the process of commencing treatment, we do not have any youth who have actually completed treatment, other than one youth who has successfully completed detox.  He remains clean and sober, although in desperate need of rehabilitation.  Delays in commencing treatment, as well as lack of treatment for other youths in need, is attributable to lack of funds.

CEO Comments

Our financials are pretty simple, as we have been operating on a shoestring budget, doing a lot on very little.
