To bridge the gap of homelessness to permanent housing in an environment where youths can overcome trauma and build life skills...
Baking is not just mixing; it’s a coping mechanism. The program focuses on girls and boys 16 and older in the foster care system and are at the highest risk of “aging out” or reaching adulthood while in foster care. Our culinary therapy will teach them proper manners and etiquette, cognitive development, encouraging their thinking, problem-solving, and creativity.
It also allows children to use their knowledge and apply it by counting, measuring, following a sequence, following directions, and cause and effect. We provide a shared cooking experience to foster children. Whether in an individual session or group, we tailor a session to fit their needs and create a shared cooking experience.
Saperia Dreams Organization, Inc. provides aging out of the foster care system a safe and secure place to live, along with resources to support and equip their transition. We hope to prevent homelessness, human trafficking, and drug addiction by providing housing, education, and job skills. Saperia Dreams Organization focuses on transitional housing for youth aging out of the foster care system, typically between 16 and 24 years old.
Our mission is to bridge the gap of homelessness to permanent housing in an environment where youths can overcome trauma and build life skills to help formulate a life of independence and emancipate successfully.
Our goal is to disrupt the cycle of incarceration, poverty, sex trafficking, abuse, homelessness, drug abuse, and HIV/AIDS. This is accomplished by helping our youth first feel safe and loved while providing them structure and building a support system with our community’s help!
