Support the Continuation of THP-Plus

Governor Schwarzenegger’s proposal to eliminate THP-Plus received important news coverage January 29 on San Diego NBC news affiliate, Channel 10.

The piece features the incredible story of Suamhirs Rivera, who was kidnapped from his native Honduras and forced to be a child prostitute in United States. Sumanhirs was placed into foster care after a police raid and entered New Alternatives, a THP-Plus provider in San Diego County, after “aging out.”

Please take a moment to view this powerful piece and share it with others. In it, Suamhirs makes a compelling case about challenges youth face in their transition from foster care and the value of THP-Plus.
