Naketa Ross is the epitome of resilience. She founded our researched based, trauma informed program to assist young adults in preparing to age out of foster care. Naketa moved to Arizona after studying Psychology at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Upon moving to Arizona Naketa began working with marginalized youth as an advocate and empower them to make healthy decisions. It is during her work with the youth that Naketa realized the gap in services provided for youth leaving foster care ages 15-21. This inspired her to start ResilientMe to fill the void left my legislators and organizations.
