Emma's Cause: You Gotta Believe
You Gotta Believe is one of a precious few organizations in the U.S. and the only organization in the New York City Metro area that solely limits its practice to finding permanent parents and families for young adults, teens, and pre-teens in the foster care system. It was founded with a mission to find adoptive parents for pre-teens, teens and young adults before they age out of the foster care system and run the extremely high risk of becoming homeless.
