Voices of Foster Youth 2010

Bayview Connect 2010:

Who: This year HEY has partnered with the renowned Project Homeless Connect to provide a special resource fair – Bayview Connect – intended to connect the many youth and families in the Bayview who are, or ever have been, involved with foster care with community based resources.  This event is in honor of National Foster Care Month and the many youth and families who are, or ever have been, involved with foster care.

The mission of Honoring Emancipated Youth (HEY) is to strengthen and connect San Francisco’s systems of support so that Bay Area youth emancipating, or “aging out” of the foster care system can enjoy a healthy transition to adulthood.  HEY identifies and raises awareness around challenges affecting local transitional aged foster youth by bringing together a diversity of expert voices and experiences, including those of former foster youth, service providers, and other supporters, in finding solutions.

As a result, supporters of foster youth are linked and informed about the challenges faced by former foster youth and gain access to hard data and expert review of policies and practices so that they can help improve the lives of foster youth.

What: Project Homeless Connect provides easy access to services for homeless San Francis­cans. Through a one stop model participants will receive access to services including: benefit assistance and processing, free on-site dental and medical services, legal advice, free haircuts, housing info and much more including free food and great raffle prizes for youth and families. 

Why: Bayview Connect will feature a special partner­ship between Project Homeless Connect, Honoring Emancipated Youth (HEY), and other agencies working with youth. This event is in honor of National Foster Care Month and the many youth and families who are, or ever have been, involved with foster care.
