I encourage you to read his letter, and then to hear his story in the attached video.

My name is Kartieaa, and I entered the foster care system at age 12 after my adoptive parents died in a car accident.
I was moved through 11 homes and wound up in jail before “aging out” of the foster care system at 18. I had no one to turn to and no place to live – until I got connected with Central Dallas Ministries’ Transition Resource Action Center (TRAC).
Now I have an apartment, a job and am taking classes at El Centro College.
Without your support of TRAC, I would probably be on the streets or back in jail.
Thank you for re-writing my future.
