We Serve You
Are you a foster youth in need of resources + a support team? If so, you've come to the right place!
Here at Poppy Muse, our goal is to help you through your journey as you transition out of the system.
We have first-hand experience of the challenges that you are facing: many members of the Poppy Muse team have overcome similar emotional, educational, career, and housing obstacles as former foster care youth.
Have we all fumbled during our journey? YES.
Have we ever given up? NO.
Poppy Muse was designed to help you get on the road to self-sufficiency and perseverance. Life is something YOU CAN do, and we’ll help you meet every challenge along the way.
Support + Guidance
We have your back: if you commit, we commit. Poppy Muse provides current and former foster care youth with a support network for life. Here are a few of the programs and resources we currently offer:
Advocacy: Tell us what you need, and we will help you reach out to the right organizations to ensure that you receive the help and care you are entitled to.
Stabilization Programs & Services: We offer a wide range of programs in Health + Wellness and Career Development. Whatever your dreams, goals, and aspirations are, we will do our best in getting you on the right path to continued success.
Direct Funding Support: For qualified youth, we provide financial assistance through our Emergency Displacement Fund, supporting tuition costs, living expenses, and other needs.
Internships: We are always looking for enthusiastic young people to become part of the Poppy Muse team.
We have assisted youth with everything from finishing their college education to landing their first job. In addition, we will advocate for you with social workers, ILP coordinators, and attorneys to ensure a smooth transition into adulthood after aging out of the foster care system.
