Aged Out Foster Youth Initiative
In order to aid this population Naji Foundation Inc will provide support and counseling services to youth who have aged out of Foster Care and need additional assistance with stability. NFI will aid in finding stable housing, enrolling into college, pay utility bills, pay daycare expenses, assist with budgeting, financial, and day-to-day life experiences.
When children cannot return home to their families, child welfare systems must move quickly to find them alternative homes. As time goes by, the prospects for landing in safe, loving, permanent homes grow dimmer for foster youth. Many will simply “age out” of the system when they turn 18, without a family and without the skills to make it on their own.
- More than 23,000 children will age out of the US foster care system every year.
- After reaching the age of 18, 20% of the children who were in foster care will become instantly homeless.
- Only 1 out of every 2 foster kids who age out of the system will have some form of gainful employment by the age of 24.
- There is less than a 3% chance for children who have aged out of foster care to earn a college degree at any point in their life.
- 7 out of 10 girls who age out of the foster care system will become pregnant before the age of 21.
- The percentage of children who age out of the foster care system and still suffer from the direct effects of PTSD: 25%.
- Tens of thousands of children in the foster care system were taken away from their parents after extreme abuse.
- 8% of the total child population of the United States is represented by reports of abuse that are given to authorities in the United States annually.
- In 2015, more than 20,000 young people — whom states failed to reunite with their families or place in permanent homes.
The Silent Female Veteran Fund
The Silent Female Veteran Fund is the result of women silently supporting women in who voice went unheard. This Fund provides subsidies to women seeking counseling but unable to afford these services. Learn more about how this fund is supported.
The Child & Adolescent Fund
The Child & Adolescent Fund provides assistance to families for the cost of counseling, educational, and assessment services. While these services are vital to accurate diagnosis and treatment, they are the most difficult to afford. The Fund also supports outreach programs delivering services in other settings.
The best thing we can do for our future is to be more proactive in serving children and teens. According to the Georgia Health News 2015, in the Georgia 2013 Youth Risk Behavioral Survey, 28 percent of high school students said they had experienced the feeling of hopelessness and sadness for a constant period of two weeks or greater during the past twelve months. That compares with 30 percent nationally. We can no longer rely on the same type of services and programs to provide the level of care needed today. As our community changes, so must we. That is what prompted the Naji Foundation Inc. initiative to design a new outreach program, the Teen Hopefulness program.
Teen Hopefulness Program is an innovative in-school mentoring and bullying program. As a key part of this program, we will screen students for depression and suicide risk. Suicide is the third leading cause of death for youth ages 10-24. Dekalb County is not immune to the occurrence of teen suicide. Preventative services and screening of adolescents using the Teen Hopefulness program is a vital tool that improves the changes of early intervention and prevention.
Back to School Extravaganza
The Back to School Extravaganza will be held in Dekalb County and available to all, free of charge. This will be an event with fun and games and other activities. There will be hairstylists providing services to young ladies, barbers providing services to young men, dentists will provide screenings, bouncy houses, food, entertainment, and much more. We also need donations to provide back to school supplies for children of all ages.
