Candice details how she decided on her vision, how to collaborate to jump start your journey, and the importance of systems.

 

Candice Liozu spent the majority of her career in the for-profit global consulting industry, working for major corporations such as Saint-Gobain and SAP. In 2017, she realized that the time had come for her to use her business background to benefit those who need it most. In Arizona, she found out that 50% of the youth aging out of foster care would end up homeless by their 20th birthday. A third of these homeless youth will be victims of sex trafficking. That is when she found her purpose.
For the past 18 months, she has been working towards building a program, Foster360, that helps this vulnerable population navigate through the services at their disposal to help them create a successful and fulfilling life. At Foster360, they fight for youth to avoid homelessness and sex trafficking by helping them connect with services within their community. Candice's main purpose is to create equal opportunity for all youth, regardless of their background and social status. She believes that by helping today's youth become productive members of society, the tragic cycle of poverty, homelessness, and desperation can be broken to create a new generational path.
