Natasha is a young mother who is in working very hard in school, pursuing a career in business management, while also working a full time job. We were blessed to be able to work with Natasha and @natashacroxall @croxava @irenamedavoy @mychellecharters1 @cherylsaban @lysaheslov @redbarris in creating her home in January. Weeks after her home creation, Natasha reached out to us and sent the inspiring, beautiful poem in the graphic above. It is such a creative and wonderful piece on its own. And yet it also exquisitely captures the ASOH mission with such depth, heart and meaning. ❤️

We at A Sense of Home strive to make each and every home creation as unique and as special as the recipient. It is an opportunity and a blessing for the recipient to know that they have a whole community here to support them and to see the love of community in every single item in their home. And be reminded of that every day that they matter, are valued, seen, heard and understood. That they are a part of us all. It is an opportunity to celebrate their many achievements, talents and skills. ✨

Think of ASOH as virtual community center, linking the broader community to youth aging out of foster care. Thank you Natasha, for sharing your kind words with us - we can’t wait to see what your future holds!🌅

Thank you to the community who have so generously supported Natasha @irenamedavoy

Happy Valentines to all the beautiful people amplifying love. May you all receive much love today. #happyvalentinesday #happyvibes #agapelove ...

Today we learnt from Felicia that she got into Columbia Law School !!! We are sending Felicia our loving congratulations, adoration and respect. We are here to support you as you continue on your remarkable journey. This is Felicia after her home was created in the summer of 2019. Felicia is one of the best examples of why ASOH exists.💫

We first met Felicia in ASOH’s earliest days. It was in 2015 when we she was moving into off campus accommodation near USC where she was studying for her Bachelor’s Degree majoring in American Studies & Ethnicity. Felicia secured a room in a large house and had no furniture. We created a sense of home for her by providing a full and fabulous bedroom with a cosy bed, desk, large wardrobe and all the essentials. Felicia volunteered from that day on, paying-it-forward with ASOH as often as she could. She has not stopped referring young women to ASOH. And in few weeks we create a home for her sister Alexys. We are SO excited !!❤️

Upon graduating, Felicia took a job serving aged-out foster youth with an agency in San Diego. During her tenure there, Felicia earned a Fulbright Scholarship in Mexico City. She then return to the US and did a summer internship in the Bay Area. She then moved to LA to take a job at the National Center of Youth Law as a Program Associate and began preparing for her law entrance exams. That was back in 2019 when we created her beautiful home. We have stayed closely connected with Felicia ever since we first met her. Her desire to become a lawyer is so that she advocate for youth in the juvenile justice system and foster care. She wants to help shape with policy to create criminal justice reform and foster care reform. She seeks justice, equality and peace for all. 💪

According to the Neuroscience Institute students & employees are greatly more productive & able to process information better when living in an organized, functional home. And environmental psychology has proven we create more exalted goals for ourself when we live in an environment that inspire us.
