Every youth who enters our program is eligible to receive a free cell phone and service plan.
THRU Project created its cell phone program because we believe that by removing the communication barrier, we can dramatically improve the mental health, wellness, and overall success outcomes of our foster youth.
This program works in tandem with our volunteer mentor program as a phone-in-hand serves as an important lifeline between mentor and mentee.
- Current or former foster youth
- Between the ages of 14-25
