Pandora's Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing information, support, and resources to survivors of rape and sexual abuse and their friends and family.
These young people face unique challenges, including changing home environments and placements, disruption to their education, and limited access to support and resources as they transition into adulthood. Department of Health and Human Services, Children’s Bureau.
Despite these challenges, youth in foster care have shown great strength and resiliency.
