How to Help
No family, no home, and no one to call when things go wrong. That’s the harsh reality for so many foster youth.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. With your support, foster youth will have someone to call when things get tough, and hope for a brighter future.
Your support will help the foster youth in our programs graduate from high school, attend and graduate college, find stable housing and employment, and will have a direct and lasting impact in thier lives for generations to come.

I looked in the mail today and what did I find? A box of goodies along with a nice letter from UFC. This is just what I needed the day before my Calculus I final. And THANKS for the GLOVES!!! (Nobody told me that it gets cold in Alabama!)"Spencer
