In just 2.5 years we have created 180 homes for 225 youth.
ASOH believes that when a youth has overcome the odds and defied the negative statistics that they should be celebrated and should have the opportunity to connect with a loving community who can open up opportunity that will empower them to flourish. ASOH believes the best opportunity to offer this is at the time of a youth setting up their first ever home. This core belief is based on scientific evidence that a serene, organized, comfortable and beautiful home environment can significantly shift the trajectory of one who has lived in poverty and overcome trauma.
Harnessing the goodwill of the Los Angeles community, ASOH connects the best of humanity with aged out youth around a celebration of the human spirit. We celebrate them by creating an inspired living environment and envelop them with love, hope and dignity. The act of creating the external home enables the youth to create the internal home necessary to develop the emotional skills required for successful work and personal relationships.
The process is designed to empower the youth to find and own their voice, while also unearthing their talents, capabilities and skills. The more a youth pays it forward the more connections they make and the more they display their work ethic and gifts which enable us to recommend them for employment and other opportunities.
