I have worked with this non-profit for several years now. The work they do helping transitional foster youth move into independent living is not only unique, it is amazing! MIH provides the basic needs of youth transitioning from foster care to independent living. These needs include beds, linens, cookware, small appliances, dishes, glasses, silverware, even furniture! Things that most foster youth do not have, nor do they have the means to buy, often hindering their ability to transition successfully. I enthusiastically support this organization and encourage others to learn more about MIH and become involved in their activities!
