Sondra’s Song – A Place to Call HomeWe exist to assist young adults into smooth transition out of foster care.
Why Does Aging Out of Foster Care Matter?
The transition into adulthood can be challenging for any young adult. Learning how to live on your own includes paying for housing, navigating other expenses, understanding how to do paperwork for taxes, and managing new responsibilities. For youth in foster care, aging out is a dramatic change in lifestyle – from being under the State’s care to being on their own. We exist to provide support young adults need to transition into independent living.

What Does Sondra’s Song Offer?
Currently, Sondra’s Song has a home that houses 8 individuals aging out of foster care. In January 2018, we are opening a second home that will have room for 5 more. During each individual’s time at Sondra’s Song, we create and tailor a structured program to help them accomplish their personal goals. Whether it’s finding a job, learning to abide by societal rules, or generally becoming prepared to function as a young adult in society, we strive to be the support system and source of encouragement each young adult deserves and needs.
We have three ways for you to get involved: Volunteer, Give, and/or Mentor. We are always looking for people to donate whatever they can to help set our family up for success! Learn more about how you can help!
