1. A Sense Of Home (Foster Youth Aging Out Documentary)


    from Ryan Oksenberg Added

    A Sense of Home (ASOH) is a very simple yet powerful concept. By collecting donated furniture from the community, a volunteer corps creates homes for foster youth exiting the foster care system. Once a youth “ages out” of the system they are without family nor any support to usher them into adulthood. The average American youth is fully dependent on their parents until age 26. At 18 or 21 foster youth exit the system with no one. They may be resourceful enough to have secured an apartment but are forced to eat, sleep and study on the floor. When the ASOH community arrives at a youth’s first ever apartment — we typically find an amazing young adult full of promise with all their possessions in garbage bags and if they are lucky — a blow up mattress. Within 90 minutes they have a fully functioning, comfortable, welcoming, inspired “home" and a new found community. The ASOH experience not only offers the youth a new beginning, a sense of “home” and belonging — but a community that is invested in them succeeding and from whom they can learn and grow. The ASOH community members are becoming mentors, job coaches and life skill educators.
