Anastasia, Age 17

Anastasia is a warm, caring, outgoing and talkative young woman. She is also very creative! She enjoys writing songs and raps and performing them in talent shows! In addition to sharing her talent verbally, she shares her feelings with the world through physical artwork, including drawings, paintings and even her clothing!

Anastasia would like a family who will accept her for who she is. She will need a family that understands that every young person needs to figure out who they are and that all they want is to have a family that they know will support them through that! Anastasia is deeply engaged in her therapy and will need a family who knows how important that is to her growth. Anastasia also has three younger brothers whom she would like to maintain contact with.

Become A Mentor To A Local Foster Youth

Ordinary things like forming safe and lasting relationships, problem-solving, goal setting, applying for college, and setting boundaries can be a great challenge for foster youth.

A caring and well-trained mentor can inspire and guide a foster youth ages 12-17, or a former foster youth ages 18-21, to pursue a productive future and reach his or her full potential. Mentor One Who Needs Someone.
