What is The Faine House?

For teens getting ready to leave their foster homes as adults, it's a chance to create a life for themselves.

In Florida, teens in foster care become responsible for everything in their lives once they leave their foster homes as adults. Housing. School. Food. Transportation. Bills. Counseling. Everything.

Many are still in high school or hoping to earn a GED. They've never really known stability or family. They certainly aren't ready for life on their own.

Enter The Faine House.

Young adults who exited foster care without families no longer need to worry about couch surfing or living on the streets. They no longer have to decide between finishing school or dropping out for a minimum-wage job.

The Faine House offers a safe, stable place to live so these young adults can focus on education and employment.

But there's more.

They'll also receive guidance to set and achieve goals. They can connect with mentors truly invested in their well-being and success.

They'll learn basic life skills many of us take for granted: proper hygiene, budgeting, house cleaning, cooking, securing transportation.

After The Faine House

We'll do more than prepare young adults for self-sufficiency and success. We'll also instill respect and an understanding of what it means to be stable, supportive adults who can, one day, be better parents to the children they may eventually have.

The Faine House isn't just a place to live. It's an open door to help young adults pursue meaningful, productive lives of independence and self-reliance.

Programs like The Faine House succeed throughout the nation. See the results and our hope for Central Florida's young adults facing life on their own.
