SUPPORTING THE TAYLOR HOUSE, Inc. (herein referred to as THE TAYLOR HOUSE) was founded by Lisa Peat in January 2012. Lisa retired from corporate finance in 2004. In 2007, Lisa became a volunteer at Child Advocates of Placer County (CASA), where she advocates in court for foster youth. Lisa has always had an overwhelming concern for the foster children who are “lost” during their emancipation out of the system at age 18. Unfortunately, they do not yet possess the life skills to navigate through life and they no longer receive help from the foster system. She was also concerned because these kids do not have responsible role models. Out of those concerns, in 2011, she purchased a rundown, foreclosed 6-bedroom property in Downtown Roseville. She created a safe place for these girls who have aged out of the foster care system. Lisa has seen many cases of kids who have become too old to receive help from the system but are too young to take care of themselves fully. The Taylor House is Lisa’s goal, come to life. It encompasses all the things that Lisa and CASA have worked so hard to accomplish; which is providing kids in need with reliable, responsible, caring role models and also creating a space where these young adults can learn life skills and responsible habits.
