Help Support a Youth Aging Out

Normal Request
In Need: 20-year-old male that has been in the foster care system since age 14. He desperately needs to get his car repaired, so he can secure his own apartment and become independent; as he will turn 21 years of age in January and age out of the foster care system. Once he is 21 he will no longer have support from the state or the Juvenile Office. He thought he was helping a friend “jump start” their vehicle, but unknowingly caused harmful damage to his vehicle in the process. One of the many unfortunate life lessons he has learned on his own without positive adult role models guiding him. His only family connection passed away last year and he no longer has any family support or guidance provided to him other than his caseworker and juvenile officer. He has received this estimate for repairs but is unable to secure the necessary funds in full before work can begin. He is a hard worker and has employment. However, in order to keep his current job, he has been relying on Uber which has been placing a strain on him from being able to catch up. Needs $2223.54 for car repairs. New Alternator, Fuse, ECM and battery ground. $450 labor, $1631.59 parts, $141.95 tax. (see attached estimate) Updated on December 05, 2022 by an Agency Worker
We received a 1000.00 donation towards this child's repairs so all he is need of now is 1224.00 or assistance from anyone that could donate parts and work on his car.
