College with Care is an initiative that supports foster youth transitioning into higher education to ensure academic success. College can be a stressful time for many, but especially for foster youth who experience instability, financial burdens, and a lack of support and guidance from parents. This year, we aim to address the regrettable results of learning loss. We have been anxiously awaiting the effects of remote education on our kids ever since we first felt the impact of the pandemic. And even while we work hard to support our youth, the consequences are becoming apparent.
Your support of College with Care will provide 1 year of services to students from high school juniors to college freshmen. The services include assistance with financial expenses, college counseling, and emotional and wellness support. Your gift will prepare our foster youth for the rigors of college and ensure they succeed no matter what hurdles they face.
