How do we help?


Poppy Muse was founded by former foster care youth, who understand what it’s like to transition out of the system. We offer programs and advocacy for current foster care youth and alumni in three key areas:

  • Health and Wellness 

  • Career Development

  • Direct Support (Housing, Education, and more)

"If it wasn’t for H.A.W.T Muse and it's Emergency Displacement Fund  and their assistance through this difficult time, who knows what these next couple of weeks would have looked like."

-Stephanie V.

"I see our youth positively being affected by sessions, if one or two youth are able to benefit, grow, learn, and excel then H.A.W.T Muse has made its mark on the next generation."


"Thank you so much for the clothing, everything you do is very much appreciated."

-Sara. S

"I contacted Tameka Mclean (Founder of Poppy Muse) for help for a foster youth aging out of the system.  Tameka was absolutely wonderful, caring and beyond helpful. I felt an instant connection to her because she understood the issues and concerns and was so willing to help."

"I want to thank the organization (Poppy Muse) for their kindness in reaching out to support me. Especially Miss Tameka who took her time calling and sending emails to assist me with my education needs. At first, I was hesitant to explain my problem to this organization but suddenly I found out that opening up and talking to generous and caring people like her was the solution to my problem. This organization took their time and effort to assist me with my tuition fee."
