How You Can Help

There are many ways that you can help young people exiting foster care in Wake County create a brighter future.


There are many ways to help young people aging out of foster care at The Hope Center. You can become a tutor, mentor, a host home participant, sign-up to provide transportation assistance to our young people, or volunteer to help us with special events. Please go to our volunteer page for more details!

Attend an Event

We host events, including our Raising Hope Gala and Cycle for Hope, as well as other fundraisers, throughout the year that we’d love your participation in. Check out our events page for updated information on our fundraising events.

Provide a Work Experience

Young people aging out of foster care need help building their resumes and exploring potential careers. Our Career Development Program offers young people an internship opportunity so that they can get the coaching and support they need to increase their employment skills. To find out more about our internship program and how your organization or business can help, please go to our internship page.


We appreciate donations of any size:

$36 buys a monthly bus pass to get one young adult to school or work.

$300 pays for enrollment in a GED course that will help ensure the opportunity to earn a living wage.

$500 is a stipend for a young adult who takes an unpaid internship to gain more work experience.

$1,000 is enough money for a deposit and the first month’s rent to prevent a young adult from becoming homeless.
