our mission

At the Aged Out Foundation, our mission is to empower young adults who have aged out of Foster and Group home care. We are dedicated to providing unwavering mentoring support and comprehensive financial assistance, ensuring that these deserving individuals have the same opportunities for success as their mainstream peers. Grounded in the belief that aged-out youth are an underserved population deserving of hope and opportunity, we stand as a beacon of advocacy and transformation.


Founded by Derek Ross, whose remarkable journey from homelessness post-emancipation to the pinnacle of success stands as a testament to the transformative power of compassion and belief, we are driven by a genuine resolve to redefine the narrative for foster youth. Our hearts beat in unison with theirs, urging us forward on this noble cause.


Together, let us weave a tapestry of possibility and empowerment, lighting the way for every young person on the cusp of leaving the system. For in their stories lie the echoes of resilience, the whispers of dreams, and the promise of a brighter tomorrow.
