YOU GOTTA BELIEVE (YGB), founded in 1995, focuses exclusively on finding permanent parents and families for kids in foster care with an expertise in working with young adults, teens, and pre-teens who are most in danger of aging out of the system alone.

Today, more than 400,000 children are in foster care in the US, and every year, as many as 17,000 of them will age out of the foster care system. Without the safety net of a forever family to provide the security and comfort most take for granted, these young people are left on their own to face a future filled with hardships — from lack of education to unemployment, higher rates of incarceration, poor health, early parenthood and homelessness (as much as 40 percent of these kids will experience this devastation in their lifetimes). In New York City alone, there are hundreds of kids currently awaiting adoption, with more than 900 kids on the verge of aging out.

COVID-19 has created many challenges that disproportionately impact kids in foster care and young people who have aged out without being connected to a loving family. Imagine yourself at 19, 21, or 24. Imagine being alone in New York during the pandemic and needing to shelter in place all by yourself. What if you lose your job? Your apartment? What do you do? Where do you go? Who do you call when you don’t have a family?

For too many kids who age out of foster care, there is no family to turn to for support. COVID-19 is shining a light on the precarious situations faced by these young people. Those in independent living are asked to face shelter in place, in literal isolation. For the college students who were sent home for the semester, many foster kids were in a panic because they have no home. They had nowhere to go, creating a crisis of potential homelessness. They begged universities to let them stay on campus where they may have felt safe but were still alone and in crisis.

It’s moments like this that You Gotta Believe’s work to connect older kids in foster care is more critical than ever. Finding a family should always be the number one priority for every child in foster care. There is no substitute for the support it provides throughout life and especially when emergencies arise.

Note from Zennie62Media and OaklandNewsNow.com : this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
