Can you imagine transitioning into adulthood with little to no family support? This is the unfortunate and often untold story for foster children who are suddenly considered adults at the age of 18. At this turning point in their young lives, these at risk youth are forced into the real world and are often expected to fend for themselves. Many heartbreaking stories and statistics are proof that the odds are stacked against them because guidance and support play such a vital role at this critical period in their lives.
The Taylor House, founded in 2012, was opened to help improve these odds. Most of the young women who apply to live at the Taylor House have already endured more emotional stress than many of us will encounter in a lifetime. They arrive with a variety of needs. They lack a sense of self-confidence and direction, often have no driver’s license or means of transportation, and most have only a dim view of what the future holds for them.
At the Taylor House, these young women are provided with endless opportunities to succeed through job training, academic assistance, and the means to experience day-to-day adult responsibilities in a safe and affordable home environment.
All of these young women are welcomed as family at the Taylor House and their accomplishments are recognized and celebrated. They are encircled with support and we are happy to offer them individual support through housing scholarships as well as our programs such as Match-a-Car Program.
Join us in giving our communities’ former foster youth the chance they deserve. You can help them reach their goals, follow their dreams, and further their education. You can show them they haven’t been forgotten, that they really do matter. Help us so we can help them because they are worth it!
All levels of monetary donations are greatly appreciated and accepted year round. Also, please join us each year in the Fall as an attendee or sponsor for the Annual Taylor House Gala. In addition to great music and an elegant sit-down dinner, you’re sure to enjoy the live auction led by the highly entertaining and energetic David Sobon of David Sobon Auctions. There are several levels of tax-deductible sponsorship opportunities available.
