Ready for Life's Mission
To provide support, resources, and guidance former foster care youth need to successfully transition to adulthood.
Ready for Life (RFL) is a solution-based skill center supporting former foster care youth in homelessness prevention, education & employment, and lifeline support networks. RFL serves youth in Pinellas Counties from 15 – 25 years old that are either in foster care or have already transitioned out and are on their own.
RFL is a family environment where young people find basic needs like food and meal kits, personal and hygiene supplies, caring support, and access to laundry and shower facilities. We understand that until immediate basic needs are met, it is nearly impossible to contemplate the future...and RFL believes that all young people deserve the opportunity for a successful future.
You can be that “one person who cares." Mentors are life-changing for our youth. As a mentor, you help brainstorm solutions, explore new possibilities, and provide the consistency our youth need to be successfully independent.
Our youth have big goals for their education and careers. As a job coach or tutor, you can help our youth learn the skills they need to further their education or land a job, including being accountable and setting goals that will shape their future.
Ready for Life provides a number of resources to help youth back on their feet and keep them there. From providing laundry and a shower in our Day Stop facility to supplying food, clothing, and housing options, Ready for Life's goal to keep youth off the street and on the right track.
