Helen Ramaglia, Founder & Aged Out Foster Child
Every year, more than 30,000 children 'age out' of foster care. They often age out, feeling hopeless, helpless and alone. Leaving care with their 'stuff' in black garbage bags.
We are a non-profit organization committed to inspiring HOPE & Healing BEFORE foster children leave care.
And give them a bag of Hope,
to carry their stuff when they are no longer in care.
