7540 Community Sponsorship


“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success” - Henry Ford
Each year in Jackson County, more than 80 youth age out of the foster-care system. These young adults too often become homeless, drop out of school, or find themselves in our criminal justice system. 
7540 Washington ReDiscover Apartments is our community’s response to this! The 14 apartments provide young adults, who have aged out of foster care, with an apartment and on-going support. Now, the Waldo-Brookside Rotary Club has become their partner!
Our Rotary Club will establish relationships with these young adults through adult mentorships, quarterly “family” meals, employment coaching and job preparation.  The goals of the partnership are to help the residents establish themselves in the community and to provide them with a better chance of long-term success.
