Elex Children's Haven mission is to empower and develop the future leaders of this country by instilling HOPE, FAITH, and CHARITY.
Our vision is to essentially eradicate homelessness in young adults aging out of foster care.
There's a harsh reality when it comes to what happens to some of these foster children when the state says "you're free to go." Transitioning from childhood to adulthood is difficult for anyone. But for most young adults, it is made easier with the support of family and friends. Imagine for a moment what your own life would have been like if at the age of 18 you were forced to make it on your own, with no money and no family support.
Well, if you are a youth in the foster care system and you reach the age of 18 or graduate from high school, this is what happens. Each year in Texas, more than 1,000 teenagers age out of the foster care system. It happens when they turn 18 and the kids are legally adults.
