of Fortune

Child of Fortune is a 501c3 tax exempt, charitable organization.

Donations are IRS verified tax deductible.

The Problem:

  • Community college students are perceived as not facing homelessness.
  • The assistance community sees the students as having resources and skills; hence, are not as needy as others in the community. This leads to extended waits on need based lists and even a lack of resources available.
  • The students feel shame and guilt; hence, may not identify as homeless.
  • Services are not offered with the needs of todays student considered.
