Empowering Lives, Restoring Hope.

Our mission is to provide a place where emancipated foster youth can reach their full potential through vocational training, life skills enrichment, and wraparound services.

The challenges facing young adults leaving foster care are daunting. This cross-section of our society is often more vulnerable to many of the ills facing our society, and we feel it is our duty to help them. Transitioning out of foster care is such a critical time!

Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated.  We provide quality programming, temporary housing, job training, and job skills and assistance to those who need it most as they transition from foster care into our world.

Together with your donation, we can help these young people so they don’t become another statistic! The Emerge Emancipation Program is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, so most donations made to us are tax-deductible.

We appreciate any support! Thank you and God Bless!

When youth were asked about the Emerge Program:

“The Emerge Program is like college, but it doesn't take 4 years and I can leave with a job."
“I like having options for a future that this program offers."
“Emerge will help me with school, job training, and the opportunity to take care of myself."
