On October 19, 2021 Nextlink presented Foster’s Home for Children – SOAR House Program with a donation of $500.00 to further their support in the Stephenville, TX community.
In August 2018, a new program debuted at Foster’s Home for Children. The SOAR (Safety, Ownership, Advancement, Responsibility) House opened its doors to accept up to seven young adults. The program is designed for young adults from ages 18-22, who have aged out of foster care and need a base of support beneath them as they transition to life on their own. This independent living program is ideally suited to Stephenville, which offers a junior college, a university, and many great employment opportunities. Residents are expected to maintain student status, employment status, or a combination of both. Guidance and counseling will be available for residents as they spread their wings on the runway to a successful adult life. The SOAR house contains seven, 550 square foot self-contained apartments. Each apartment includes a full kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, living room, essential furniture, washer & dryer. Vehicles are available for short term use and residents have an on-site advisor that is available to them for 24-hour support and guidance. This terrific program is a service of Foster’s Children’s Home, which is in it’s 60th year of providing residential care for children of trauma. Foster’s provides a home for children from both private and public referral sources. Foster’s Home receives over 90% of its support from donations. The Home is an accredited charity by the Better Business Bureau.
