ABOUT ECHOES OF HOPE
Echoes of Hope was founded by Luc and Stacia Robitaille to address the needs of youth during times of adversity and to identify young people with the drive and ability to succeed. The only obstacle facing these youth is the lack of tools and support to create brighter futures and better opportunities for themselves.
In 2015, Echoes of Hope helped more than 700 emancipated foster youth in Los Angeles secure sustainable housing, gain full-time employment and complete their post-secondary education.
