A Word from Our Founder
I am so thankful that you found Grove Collaborative Services. Our goal is to provide housing and supportive services to young adults ages who are aging out of the foster care system and need some help navigating life after adulthood. The organization was birthed in May 2021 out of a need to first prevent homelessness and second, provide uplifting services to become a successful adult. Transitioning out of foster care and partnering with GCS will afford youth the opportunity to change the trajectory of previously fostered youth across Hampton Roads, VA.
