Elexius, Age 16

Elexius is a very sweet girl. She is energetic and full of life. She is kind, generous, and always willing to help. Elexius is a good student and was on the honor roll the last few semesters. She is looking forward to her future and the next chapter of her life. Elexius can be insightful but lacks self-esteem. She is working on building her confidence. She is excited to find employment and start working. She also has shared she loves animals and would like to volunteer at a local animal shelter. Some of Elexius’ favorite things to do are crafts and scrapbooking. She enjoys board games, puzzles, and coloring. She also likes to bake and cook but wants to learn more recipes.

Elexius does not have a preference of a single or two-parent home. She is more interested in the amount of support the family has to offer. She has shared she would like a younger, more active family. She would like a sibling with a mixture of foster, adoptive, and biological kids in the home. She has some anxiety about a new placement not only because she realizes she will have changes in people and rules but because she finds it hard to trust the people in her life. She again loves animals, so she is hoping for a dog but admits a cat would also make her happy. She does not have a preference of a city or rural placement. Again, the home dynamics don’t matter to Elexius as much as the family inside. She is looking for a family that will stick with her through the happy, sad, and all those in-between moments that may not be perfect but were made together.

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.
