SPONSOR THE DREAM HOME
Through Dream Home Sponsorship, you can give hope to young women aging out of institutions! Your support provides the opportunities and resources needed for these young women to earn their college degree while also learning what it means to be a successful, independent adult. By sponsoring the Dream Home, you are giving these amazing young women the support they need to heal from the past and the empowerment they need to live out the future that God intended for them.
Join us and empower students to rewrite their stories. You can be the difference for the young women in the Dream Home!
Together with a local partner, we created the very first “Dream Home” in Colombia for young women who are aging out of institutional care. Children in many countries “age out” of the government care system as young as 15 years old—this means they are no longer eligible for adoption and are often cut off from support without the skills or resources to break the cycle of poverty and broken relationships in their lives. The Dream Home provides a safe space for adolescents to successfully transition from institutional life into independent adulthood. In an age-appropriate, trauma- informed environment, kids who previously would have been left to repeat their broken history will now have the opportunity to heal from past wounds and learn how to be a healthy adult while pursuing a college degree.
With your support, students will receive:
- 24/7 loving, trauma- informed care
- Counseling and mental health services
- Career-development training and mentorship
- Increased employment opportunities
- Clothing & hygiene items
- Healthy meals and nutrition coaching
- Specialized medical care
- Transportation to/from school
Your support is life-changing
Your generosity is essential for this work to continue. Monthly sponsorship makes this level of care sustainable and allows AGCI to plan for the future. Your support makes it possible for these incredible young women to have a stable, safe place to call home, and the security to plan for the future they have always dreamed of.
Angela was one of the first young women in our Dream Home to graduate! Angela recently earned her degree in accounting and is now working full-time. Angela’s transformation during her time the Dream Home is such a testament to God’s goodness! With the help of the Dream Home, she has begun to heal from a lifetime of trauma and has broken the cycle of trauma for her family. We are so proud of her and all that she has accomplished.
Training and education are crucial in empowering older orphans in creating full, happy lives outside of an institution. Through Education Sponsorship and Vocational Training Programs, we support orphans who are aging out to ensure that they have the tools they need to achieve their dreams, develop healthy relationships, and create successful independent futures.
You can impact older orphans by providing them with the sponsorship and encouragement they need to follow their dreams, earn their degrees, and become independent adults.
