Young adults who have been part of the foster care system received a special donation of furniture to help them begin their independent lives.

Tiare Hill, 20, and five other young adults received free furniture for their brand new apartments, thanks to Ashley Furniture HomeStore and the non-profit group Aspiranet.

These young adults are part of the foster care system. Many of them were never adopted, and now as young adults, they are having to move out on their own.

They each received a sofa, a coffee table, two end tables, a bed headboard and foot board, a mattress and a chest of drawers.

"It gives them a sense of home, and it gives them a sense of a home that they've dreamed of having. They walk in on the first day, and they see a furnished apartment," said Jeannie Imelio with Aspiranet. "It's more than they ever imagined that they would have at this age."
