Youth Opportunity Foundation provides grants, encourages collaboration, and commissions applied research to turn vulnerable young people into productive adults. Troubled children deserve the opportunity to overcome the debilitating distress preventing them from reaching their potential, whether that distress is the result of trauma, abuse, mental illness, emotional disorder, or behavioral dysfunction.
What if you were judged your whole life for a mistake you made as a teenager? Would your life be different if you were neglected or abused as a child? Can you imagine being so emotionally broken that you are incapable of functioning – because you were an innocent victim of a horrifying crime? We are dedicated to giving these traumatized and victimized young people a second chance at life.
