Support for former foster youth as they exit the Texas foster system.
Our youth deserve better.
Full independence at age 18 is a tall order, even under the best circumstances. But we continue to expect miracles from our most vulnerable. Unlimited Potential works to bring all available resources within reach while supplying a few essentials of our own. With the right tools and support, young men and women who have aged out of the Texas foster system can confidently prepare themselves for a better tomorrow.
The four categories of skills known collectively as “life skills” are some of the most valuable tools a person can wield as they enter adulthood.

Skills include resume building, cooking, basic home repairs, interviewing skills and more.
