A Sense of Home

"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." - A Sense of Home

A Sense of Home, an LA-based nonprofit founded in 2014, brings together a community of foster youth and volunteers to transform homes for foster youth who have “aged out” of the foster care system. In less than 2 years, founder Georgie Smith and her dedicated team of volunteers–all former foster youth–created 120 new homes and 170 new beds for foster youth in Los Angeles.
