Legacy House is a unique home with an environment empowering young women aging out of the foster care system to build their own life by bridging the gap between foster care and sustainable independence.
All of those involved in the Legacy Housing Project believe young women aging out of the foster care system without a support system, are one of the highest “at risk” populations. Statistics say that a teenage girl on the streets will be approached within 48 hours by a “pimp” for many this results in a season or lifetime of sex slavery. (Kids at Risk Action – Children’s Rights Advocacy Network).
Augustine Church, Ormond Church and Ponce Church along with the collaboration of community partners help prevent the vulnerabilities that these young women face when they age out of foster care. With partners like you we can provide these young women with a safe and stable home environment where they will be fully supported physically, emotionally and spiritually to achieve sustainable personal, academic, career and independent living goals. Augustine Church supports the Legacy Housing Project in serving young women in their transitional life stages. We thank you for your support in building safe and healthy lifestyles for these young women.
Legacy Housing Project:
It took two years with a vision to help girls aging out of the foster care system and we now have our first home – Legacy House Ormond and are currently getting ready to provide our second home Legacy House St. Augustine. With the Legacy Housing Project we are helping to prevent homelessness and trafficking. We are also providing a future and hope for these girls as they age out of the foster care system.
Pastor Nina Tidwell is the Director of the new Legacy House St. Augustine. She is also Pastor of Augustine Church coming in 2017.
Our son Rich Tidwell is founder and Pastor of Ormond Church and is Director of Legacy House Ormond along with his wife Brandi.
