Dennis Saenz, 20, waits for a bus to take him to school at American River College, Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2015. Saenz is one of the young adults receiving support from Aspiranet, an agency that helps foster youths jump-start their journey into independent living. The agency is asking Book of Dreams readers to aid Saenz and 15 other foster youths by helping purchase bicycles, helmets and bike locks. In the absence of personal vehicles, bicycles would provide a reliable mode of transportation for commuting to and from work and school for the program’s clients.
