Across the United States, a recognizable need has developed for the provision of outreach services for individuals and families. While the obstacles that must be faced by residents can be seen as immeasurable, some of the most pressing issues facing individuals today are the outbreaks of unemployment, homelessness, and juvenile delinquency. This is especially evident in youth aging out of formal institutions. Each year the statistics become more disheartening.

Helping You Grow Successfully (HUGS), Inc.’s purpose is to help college-bound, at-risk and foster youth transition into adulthood successfully by implementing a holistic approach as well as providing a safe place to access community resources. The organization strives to assist the youth in successfully transitioning into adulthood by maintaining stable and suitable housing, remaining free from legal involvement, participating in an educational/vocational program and developing the life skills necessary to become a responsible citizen.
