In 1992, Greg and Robin Rapport adopted their first of two wonderful children. During that process, the Rapports were introduced to the adoption, as well as foster care systems. As their own children grew, Greg and Robin saw first-hand the difference that a stable, loving family makes in a child’s life.
The Rapports were particularly disturbed by the potentially horrendous plight of youth who age-out of the foster system. They saw that these children often have few, if any, life skills that they can use to their advantage in the real world. Age-out children’s educational skills are frequently far below grade level, making it difficult for them to go to college or maintain meaningful employment. In many cases, these children are simply waiting to be victims. Their fate is frequently homelessness, incarceration, or death.
The Rapports are dedicated to being a positive force in the protection of our nation’s youth. These youth may not have the parental support necessary to avoid the pitfalls that can swallow those who are young, naive, and easy prey when not properly guided. But the Rapport’s plan to give them an army of Angels to help them and remind them that they are worthwhile.
