Did you know that 50% of all foster children in the United States will end up homeless at some point in their lives?

What if you could be responsible for helping at least one person avoid the inevitability of becoming homeless? What would it mean to you if you could be a part of the educational programs that would ensure the children never had to be exposed to living on the streets?

It doesn’t take that much! It might involve volunteering to speak at the school once and exposing the children to the benefit of your education and life experiences. It could be visiting the kids and playing golf, basketball, a musical instrument or taught them to cook.

It really doesn’t take that much to reach out and help those who are less fortunate than you are. You can even start locally and look for youth organizations or boys and girls clubs to find out how you might make a difference in your community.

It’s a sad situation, but we have 40% of our children who do not graduate high school every year. That’s 15 million children. If you were to inspire a group of children to learn or continue their education or even learn a trade, you could save them from the fate they are destined to experience.

It’s up to us to help one child at a time!

About Sharyn

As founder of UBU I found my inspiration from my brother Tony who was a foster child, then adopted by my parents when he was five. After listening to his stories about the treatment he received while in the homes I began to think of what it was like for him as well as the thousands of other kids. I decided to start the school after Tony passed on in 2008. It is my tribute to him and all that he did for me. Of all the things I've done in my life, this is the one thing that truly makes me feel like I'm finally on the right path.
