Rosaleana's provides housing and supportive services to emancipate foster youth ages 18-21 that have been abused, neglected, and that are homeless or have the potential of being homeless due to living in temporary unstable housing. For many of these young adults, family support is not available and community support is not sufficient to prepare them for success as independent adults. The program will reduce the risk of homelessness, and early education failure among the clients served.
Rosaleana’s Community Development Center, Inc. also has a mentor program. Rosaleana’s Community Development Center, Inc. assists young adults in all programs, in locating a mentor to support them on their journey to adulthood. Mentors are more than friends to the young adults served in Rosaleana’s programs. They are often the only visitor and the first positive adult role model the young adults served ever had. By showing they care, mentors give the young adults more reasons to smile, work on their treatment and hope for a brighter tomorrow.
