FRIENDS OF THE SAN FRANCISCO INDEPENDENT LIVING SKILLS PROGRAM
November 7, 2012

Did you ever have to leave home with one black garbage bags for all your things, just cuz you had turned 18? If you were lucky, someone might say... "good luck..." That is most often the story of a foster youth leaving "the system." SFILSP is a program supporting foster youth who must make this transition and FRIENDS raises money and awareness for these incredible youth who face and surmount enormous challenges. Money raised goes to scholarships and other "grants" that support young people who are going to college and need money for books, luggage to get there, and a myriads of other needs for youth struggling to meet the costs of housing, a bed for a child to sleep on, and well just imagine what else... FRIENDS is a sustained by an all volunteer board and monies raised go directly to the foster youth who apply and interview for any grants awarded. This is a fantastic non-profit and I know my donations and their service are making a difference.
