Through hard work and the help of a strong personal support network, anyone can attain their own version of success.
About 6% of Americans spend time in the foster care system at some point during their youth. Their outcomes don't look anything like the American Dream.
Maintaining the status quo will continue what experts call foster care "pipeline to prison" and the "highway to homelessness."
Investing in their education will break this cycle and open doors so they can create their version of success. This is our mission.
