Los Angeles is home to the largest transitional aged youth population in the United States. More than 25% of former foster children become homeless within two to four years of leaving the system. The biggest obstacle facing former foster youth to stay in school is housing instability. That is where Angels Nest steps in and steps up. We aim to provide housing assistance and wraparound services to those who need it most.
