San Antonio in a Box + THRU Project
THRU Project it is a nonprofit organization that bridges the gap between foster care and adulthood for youth who age out of the foster care system.
Exiting foster care alone at age 18 can be overwhelming. The statistics show increased rates of homelessness, unplanned pregnancy, and incarceration amongst foster alumni. THRU Project provides foster youth, ages 14 and up, with a volunteer mentor, free bus passes & cell phones, crucial life skills training, and affordable & stable housing.
