About

Our Vision:  Individuals in need have the education, resources, and care needed to thrive physically and emotionally.

 

Our Mission: To empower individuals who face chronic illness by coordinating care not easily accessible to them.  

Our services are for individuals referred to us who have aged out of foster care. These young adults are at a higher risk for chronic illness, and often have little resources to manage symptoms. 

After firsthand experience with a broken healthcare system that created more stress piled on complicated health issues, our founder wanted to do something. Active in community programs, it broke her heart to see those in less fortunate situations hit rock bottom when dealt with similar issues. 

Almost half of adults in the U.S., regardless of their income, find it a real struggle to afford healthcare. One in four adults admit they've skipped or delayed healthcare in the past year just because of the cost. The number jumps to six in ten for adults without insurance.

It's not just doctor visits, though. Even prescription drugs are taking a hit due to the high costs. Roughly 20% of people have skipped filling a prescription because of the expense, and one in ten adults have had to cut pills in half or skip doses in the last year.

If you look at households making under 40K a year, they're more than three times as likely as those making over 90K to say affording healthcare is a real challenge (69% vs. 21%). (Source: KFF Health Care Debt Survey: Feb.-Mar. 2022)
