BE KIND .
LOVE MORE.
DO GOOD.
In the United States, young adults who “age out” of the foster
care system are the most vulnerable to poor outcomes.*
Our vision at Doing Good Works is for all young people who
experienced foster care to have an equal chance to succeed
and feel empowered.
Our mission is to foster the purpose of business to improve
lives and connect communities through our 10/20/30 model.
We turn business transactions into life transformations.
10% of prots are donated
to organizations that support
the foster community
20% of employee time is
available for mentoring
in the community
30% of employees are
from the foster community
Because of the grant I received from
Doing Good Works, I did not have to
choose between paying my electricity
bill and buying textbooks for school. I
even have $100 extra dollars that I can
save.
I want to empower people to decide things
for themselves and be who they want to be
rather than who they are told to be. I try to
be empowering in my interactions with
people all the time and the work that I want
to do is fundamentally about giving people
the opportunity to speak and be heard.
Personal growth and development is positively
impacted by a caring adult other than the youth’s
parents.*

YOUTH IMPACTED
...Whether it was coming with me to the
mechanic or dealing with my emotions
and seasons in my life [my mentor] was
always there. She just really wanted to
be there through it all — the crises and
the happy times. It made my will to live
greater on a day to day basis — which
may sound a lil’ funny but is true.
Young adults with a mentor are more likely
to overcome adversity than those who do
not have a mentor. *
Doing Good Works came into my life at
the perfect time and when I really needed
it. I was nervous at the end of my college
journey, and they stepped in so gracefully
and gave me opportunities that I would
not have at another company.
Of the 20,000 young people who transition out
of foster care annually, 50% are unemployed
by age 24 and 28% experience homelessness.*
