Jristopher, Age 17

Calling all Chicago Bulls fans! Jristopher loves watching his favorite NBA team play. He also enjoys shooting hoops himself. It’s no surprise then that his favorite class is gym. Jristopher has recently started taking some boxing lessons as well. He likes spending his free time visiting the park, playing Xbox, reading comics or coloring. Jristopher has dreams of becoming an electrician and hopes to visit the Bahamas so he can see the ocean for the first time.

Jristopher is such a special young man who has largely given up hope that a family will be found for him. He is open to any family structure and would like to have siblings (just not too many!). Jristopher would love to have a pet dog, cat or even a monkey! He has attended a church youth group in the past and enjoyed it. Jristopher hopes that he can find a family who is loving and caring and who likes to visit amusement parks. He would love to have the chance to go on a family vacation. Could you be the family to put the light back in Jristopher’s life?

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.
