Foundation 2 Gave Me a Place to Stay

“We used to sleep under bridges, in abandoned warehouses, abandoned houses, under peoples’ porches. There are kids out there. A lot of people may not know it.”

Foundation 2 Gave Me A Roof To Live Under

“It made me feel real good knowing that someone besides my parents and foster parents really cared about me. I would also like to thank the TLP program for taking me in because without you guys I probably would have been out on the streets living like a bum.”

Crisis Line is Important to Me

"I want to let you know how important the crisis line has been to me. I really suffer from depression and anxiety. All of the people that answer the phones are so kind to me. God Bless You." -Letter from a client of our crisis line


Former youth shelter resident

It’s been 10 years ago around this month that I lived there but I wanted to say thank you! At the time I thought you guys were horrible with all the rules and giving me a difficult time not letting me see my boyfriend. I'm sorry if I gave you all a hard time. I understand now that it was for my own good. I just wanted to let you know that I have come a long way from the girl who was pregnant, on drugs, and living on the streets. I am currently a mother of 5, happily married for 6 years! I’m currently a RN working on my BSN. So when people are in the boat that I was in you can say there is still hope to change your life for the better. Because I am living proof! Thank you for all the help I will never forget the part you all played in my life.

Housing Young People in Crisis

“Several years ago we temporarily housed a young person that transitioned to independent living through Foundation 2. I don't know how that would have worked had your organization not been there for help.” -Friend of a former Independent Living Program participant


Foundation 2 Services are Essential

"Calling your center most likely saved my life. You are essential to have in our community for those who have nowhere else to turn."
