Zoie’s Place provides shelter to homeless youth who have experienced or aged out of the foster care system.
Young women between the ages of 18 and 26. Residents must be working to finish high school or an equivalency program, or enrolled in a college or vocational program. Must be willing to work at least 20 hours a week and deposit a portion of their earnings into a savings account each month so they are prepared to live independently when they exit the program.
What We Do
Zoie’s Place comes alongside youth and young adults who have experienced foster care to provide support and services as they transition from foster care to adulthood. We have two transitional homes in Denton, TX with a total of 8 available beds. In addition to our housing programs, we provide college support, mentorship and other services to support young adults through their transition to independence.
Residents receive assistance gathering necessary identification documents to obtain employment.
Each resident will work with staff to come up with an individualized plan to help them identify the steps needed to achieve self-sufficiency.
The two transitional homes are located in Denton, TX but mentorship and other college support is provided to Denton, Dallas, Tarrant, Collin, Wise and Cooke counties.
