Bea’s Home for Youth
Dedicated to Bea Costner, Project Meet Me Halfway’s first transitional home for foster youths is planned for girls age 18 and older that are aging out of the foster care system.
The home will be built in North Carolina, where musician Jimmy Wayne once lived in an abandoned trailer. The long-term goal of Project Meet Me Halfway is to open additional all-girls or all-boys residences across the country.
For at-risk, transitioning teens, Bea’s Home will provide the support, love and life-skills to help ensure a better tomorrow. But this won’t be a handout.
Jimmy passionately states, “I’m asking you to help me help these children but I’m also asking the kids that want my help, to meet me halfway. That’s the starting point.” The young people living in Bea’s Home will be expected work and go to school but if they’re committed to their futures, then so is Jimmy.
Jimmy uses his experience growing up in and out of the foster care system and living on the streets, as well as his success in the entertainment business, to help these children that are growing up the same way he did. But he knows he can’t do it alone. Jimmy needs your help —and theirs. Project Meet Me Halfway is about coming together for a better tomorrow.
Jimmy has been honored by the state of Tennessee for his advocacy work to extend foster care services to young adults. At one time, he was a national spokesperson for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), a national network of volunteers who represent the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courtroom and other settings.
