Kentucky RISE

Put yourself in the shoes of a young person who just turned 18 and aged out of foster care.  Imagine being told, “Go, spread your wings!”  Imagine the terror of having to face this world with few if any skills.  Nobody was there to mentor you through childhood.  No safety net to help you transition to fending for yourself.  There’s one place called Kentucky RISE that assists young adults to get a driver’s license, apartment, or healthcare.  The list can seem endless.  I’m telling you about this oasis for foster kids, praying that someone listening will feel God’s tug on their heart and jump in with both feet.  Visit lifeissues.org and click on the top banner.  Find the link for Kentucky RISE to help you get started in your state.
