Unity of SA Supports Foster Youth as They Move Into Adult Life
THRU is an independent non-profit that was initially based out of our church. The THRU Project is dedicated to supporting foster youth as they transition into adult life. Unity of SA also currently supports THRU with office space and other resources. Their co-founder is church member Elaine Hartle. Unity of SA’s senior minister, Rev. Linda Martella-Whitsett serves on their Board as Board Secretary. Many Unity of SA members are volunteer Advisors for THRU youth. The mission of THRU Project is “.. to help youth overcome the challenges of growing up in the foster care system by providing guidance, support and advocacy in order to prepare them for life after foster care.”
Make a difference in the life of a young person leaving foster care and entering adult life. Come to the next THRU Project Informational/Training Session!
THRU provides information and training to potential mentor (advisor) volunteers for youth on the second Saturday of every month, from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in suite 210 of the Unity Heights building on 8103 Broadway Street in San Antonio.
