"The ache for home lives in all of us.” Maya Angelou.

We hope you all are finding peace at home as we weather this storm. Thank you for
helping ASOH create homes and peace for so many deserving young people with
young families of their own. You can sponsor a “virtual home creation”. You will
receive a video of the recipient speaking from their circumstances living on the floor
and then receiving their home creation. You can make it in honor or of loved one or a

“There is more of this than the other way around” said by the volunteer in this video. In the spirit of MLK, we are working towards amplifying humanity, and greater understanding between one another. We believe in the true definition of love MLK spoke so eloquently about: agape love . “Nonviolence is absolute commitment to the way of love. Love is not emotional bash; it is not empty sentimentalism. It is the active outpouring of one’s whole being into the being of another.” -MLK

Harnessing the goodwill of the 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. Thank you community !! In these trying times we stand in solidarity with you in amplifying humanity ❤️🙏 #ASOH #together #love #humanity ...

A full night's rest is a necessary facet of any child's development. 😴💤  In order for our kids to become the strong individuals we hope for them to one day be, they must be given a nurturing environment and cozy bed. No toddler should be sleeping on the floor! ASOH is in especially great need right now of toddler beds and crib mattresses. Please go to link in our bio to buy on the ASOH Amazon wishlist. Thank you all SO much, xoxo #ASOH #Family #Baby #Formerfosteryouth #fostercare ...

HOME is everything to us right now. It always has been ❤️ But we are truly coming to appreciate it right now. Thank you for helping ASOH continue to create homes during the pandemic for so many deserving young people with young families of their own. This week, we are in urgent need of sofas and dining tables. Please do whatever you can and help provide these vital home items. Donate today! #ASOH #community #home #create #fostercare #formerfosteryouth #pandemic ...

From his book “Traumatic Stress: The Effects of Overwhelming Experience on Mind, Body, and Society.” Bessel van der Kolk MD is a professor of Psychiatry at Boston University School of Medicine and president of the Trauma Research Foundation in Brookline, Massachusetts. He has spent his professional life studying how children and adults adapt to traumatic experiences. He translates emerging findings from neuroscience and attachment research to develop and study a range of effective treatments for traumatic stress and developmental trauma in children and adults. We agree with his profound words. By restoring our relationships with one another, we are able to restore our whole world. #together #ASOH ...
