Great News! We're a finalist in the 2014 Monstanto Grow St. Louis contest
VOTE for the "Angels' Arms Fosters Higher Education" Project and help us win $20,000!
Voting begins July 21, 2014 and goes through Sunday, August 3, 2014.
Statistically, between 30-50% of children in Missouri foster care will never graduate from high school and only 3% will graduate from college. Up to 35% will experience homelessness. Many will struggle to find jobs that pay a livable wage.
At Angels' Arms, the track record of high school graduation for students living in an Angels’ Arms home is 100%. If we win, the Grow St. Louis grant money will help 19 college and high school students cover the cost of ACT preparation courses, ACT testing, college tuition, books, registration fees, supplies, transportation and many other expenses facing young foster students as they move forward to become productive citizens in our community.
You can vote once a day via the Grow St. Louis Facebook Page
