the project

Some of our most vulnerable populations, have been through life’s hurricane, tornado and tsunami and been affected so intimately, that their bearings are greatly compromised. They had normal in some cases, beginnings. And for some, very unthinkable, humbling beginnings. Here at a Second Home For You, we don’t judge, we assess, them put a plan together for execution.

All plans are on a case-by-case basis (not one size fits all). But what each member is afforded is, a family, brotherhood environment. Our first initiative is to make them part of the planning phase for their lives. We’ll cover hygiene, cleanliness, work ethic, time management etc. This part of the plan is COVID responsive. Many young people don’t take COVID-19 or this global Pandemic, as serious as they should, UNTIL IT’S TOO LATE (i.e. social distancing, proper-regular hand washing or wearing masks, consistently)! We’re preemptive! Because they can’t go out an eat like they would pre-pandemic, so knowing how to grocery shop, is essential.

Once a week, we’ll sit down with each individual and plan out a budget-respective shopping list, that includes a staple of items, as well as wish/snack items. Also included will be what stores to shop from, that are value-based. We will re-evaluate quarterly, and keep the same plan, if effective. Or make the necessary revisions. Once they increase their comfort level and capacity to self-manage, they’ll be installed as a Peer Coach (to further their knowledge and participation).

why we're doing it

Cuyahoga County children need your help! We currently have the highest number of children in custody in years. Each of these children needs and deserves a family. You can help by becoming a foster or adoptive parent.The coronavirus pandemic has aggravated the difficult work of finding and maintaining stable homes, also effective programs for the United States’ more than 400,000 foster children. The mechanisms of foster care vary by state—sometimes by county—but many of the same threats loom over each location. Although specific nationwide statistics from recent months are hard to come by, interviews with experts, social workers, and foster parents paint a grim picture of a system where capacity for housing children was already strapped and turnover among placements was already high. Now many local foster-care systems are facing shortages of foster parents and outbreaks in group homes and residential facilities, making what was already an unstable situation for children even more volatile.
