Our Story

Mission

Our mission is to assist young women to transition out of foster care successfully.

Women in Transition was founded in (enter date) by a foster mother who saw a dire need for children who were aging out of the US foster care system. 15,000 women age out of foster care in the US and 50% become homeless. Our founder thought that there must be a way to empower these kids towards their independence and from this heart, Women in Transition was born.

Since then, we have dedicated our efforts to serve (enter number here) young women in Baltimore who just need that extra push, motivation, guidance and love. We empower our girls to recognize and harness their unique abilities and talents to gain the confidence to pursue even their wildest dreams. 

With the introduction of the Women in Transition Academy in (enter date) and initiatives like The Marylander, our girls are placed into a program where they can identify and work towards a higher education and career path of their choice. 

We believe that every girl has something to offer their community and this world. So, we are devoted to help them make it happen.


We Believe


Every girl is born with purpose and has something unique to offer this world.
