Foster Kids Evicted on their 18th Birthdays: How does The Salvation Army respond?

“Fostering Freedom" When foster kids turn 18, it’s an unfortunate reality that some are kicked out of their foster homes, making them homeless on the night of their 18th birthday. Furthermore, many have no credit and no rental history, so even those that have jobs and can pay for rent still struggle to get approved for an apartment. This is the story of Kekoa and Julissa, two young adults in Hilo, Hawaii. All around the world, The Salvation Army is dedicated to creating community-focused solutions based on the needs of the local community. It’s no different in Hawaii, where the local staff found a creative approach to helping young adults aging out of foster care.
