Congratulations Jennifer and family on your new home! 💕

Jennifer’s home has already begun creating positive changes in her life. She is spending more time at home with her family. She is working towards her dream of owning her own business. And is already paying-it-forward by volunteering with #ASOH to create homes for other former foster youth. 👏

Welcome to the #asenseofhome family Jennifer! We know great things are in store for you!

A huge thank you to @captialgroup for making this #homecreation possible, we couldn’t have done it without you!

Who doesn’t love a good transformation from an empty space into a loving home?

Thank you to our amazing volunteers for making Malaka and her daughter’s #homecreation possible!

The entire #ASOH team would like to wish a very Happy Mother’s Day to all of our amazingly strong, resilient, and wonderful mothers! 💕💐

More than half of the #homecreations provided by #asenseofhome for women who were formerly in the foster care system have children of their own. The mothers we serve are beyond grateful to receive this gift, as well as the love and support they receive from our community of volunteers.

Thank you to everyone who has taken the #mothersdaychallenge and is helping us reach our goal of raising $50K to furnish homes for 25 young mothers. If you haven’t already taken the #mothersdaychallege, there is still time! Click the link in our bio to learn how.

“I can finally reach my life goals. It’s going to show them they can do it too.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves! 👏👏👏

Our #homecreations create the foundation on which our beneficiaries can reimagine their lives and work towards a brighter future for themselves and their children, breaking the cycle of poverty and housing insecurity.

#homecreations mean more than furnishings to these young mothers – they mean housing stability and the start of a new chapter in their lives and in the lives of their children. ⁠

70% of women who age out of the foster care system will become pregnant before they turn 21. They are also 600% more likely than the general population of the same age. At #asenseofhome 50% of the women we serve are young mothers. ⁠

#ASOH takes pride in knowing 100% of our beneficiaries have successfully maintained their housing and report feeling confident and hopeful about their future. ⁠

As Mother’s Day approaches we encourage you to take the #mothersdaychallenge, make a pledge and ask a mom in your life to do the same. Click the link in our bio to learn more! 💕⁠
