A SENSE OF HOME (ASOH) is a LA-based nonprofit organization designed to transform the lives of at-risk foster youth who age out of the foster care system by creating their first ever homes. Installing donated furniture, volunteers work with the ASOH Team (consisting of all foster youth staff) to create an inspired home for a foster youth in their first permanent living space, empowering the youth to be as successful as their environment. The experience is akin to therapy. The youth feels for the first time in their life that they matter and gain stability, dignity, self-worth, pride and confidence.
By creating a physical home that is the embodiment of the dreams and unique personality of each youth served and an ongoing community of care, A Sense of Home offers aged-out youth the courage to dream and confidence to manifest those dreams, to transform the experience of scarcity to abundance and generosity.
