Welcome!

Each year, thousands of foster youth AGE-OUT of the foster system in the United States. Many of these young people are without resources, without family and without HOPE. With little support, the majority of these young adults fail to thrive.

Age Out. Rise Up! aims to improve these outcomes by offering former foster youth and all who come from hard places, personal incite and encouragement to not only be “survivors” but Thrivers.

The Dandelion Represents:
Healing from emotional pain and injury, emotional intelligence. The Warmth of the Rising Sun, Surviving through challenges and difficulties, Longlasting happiness and youthful joy. and Getting Your Wishes Fulfiiled!
I thought that was a pretty appropriate symbol for all that I wish for you!
