Autumn Affair Beneficiary Announcement!
The Bexar County Women’s Bar Foundation is pleased to announce that the Beneficiary for this year's Autumn Affair isTHRU Project. Each year, hundreds of youth leave the foster care system in San Antonio at the age of 18. After a life in foster care full of rejection, separation, instability, and likely, abuse, they will leave foster care without stable housing, no family support, little education or job training and most importantly, they often leave without a single, trusted adult to help guide and support them as they learn to live independently. THRU Project matches foster youth with a volunteer mentor to be that trusted support system. Mentors help youth navigate their resources, advocate for them when needed, and let them know they are not alone in this critical time. Have a THRU Project Mentor significantly increases our youth's chances of postponing parenthood, continuing their education, being employed and having stable housing. THRU Project works with a multitude of organizations to provide the care and resources so desperately needed by these young men and women. But in the end, no organization or service can replace a one-on-one connection. We all need to have someone we can turn to for help. We all deserve to have someone to cheer us on, to believe in us. THRU Project is dedicated to providing that one person to every youth leaving foster care in San Antonio and we thank you for your support.
