Mission Statement

Roots & Wings provides young adults who age out of the foster care system in New Jersey with safe housing, educational support, counseling, and life skills in order to empower them toward self-sufficiency.

Quick Facts

Nationwide, within two years of being closed out of foster care, 50% of these young people are unemployed and 1 in 4 become incarcerated.
