Youth in foster care are among the most disconnected in our community. Be the bridge that closes the gaps in their lives!! - LISA, Inc.


By 15, young Faith had endured a tremendous amount of adversity. She was physically abused by her mother, in multiple foster care placements, and for some time, was homeless.

Faith was enrolled in the LISA, Inc. Community Based Life Skills (CBLS) program but quit after a few months. She disappeared for almost two years. Then one day, she returned and vowed that she was committed to changing her life and using every resource LISA, Inc. had available. Faith became a resident of the Lisa's Wish Program where she worked with staff to get the life skills she needed to succeed. She was a role model of responsibility and strength for other girls in the program.

Faith earned a scholarship to a nursing aid program and became a certified CNA. She's devoted to giving back and has supported other youth going through CBLS. Last year, Faith generously donated school supplies to current residents. She also openly shares her story to inspire others. A proud mother of a one-year-old , Faith works full-time, recently re-connected with her biological father and is working to build a healthy relationship with her mother.

From all of us at LISA, Inc: Keep up the good work Faith, we believe in you!!
