ISSUES: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward County

Teens and young adults who come out of Florida’s foster care system face a grim future; 25% will be homeless within one year of leaving the system, and less than half graduate from high school. To make statistics like these a thing of the past, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward County has launched a new initiative to measure the success of young adults coming out of foster care, having received their support services. BBBS Broward’s VP of Programs, Anne Gardiner-Lorenz, shares more about their latest initiative, and how you can help by becoming a mentor.
