Our July Hero of the Month is Michelle Dennis, a philanthropist who advocates for the emotional healing of foster youth who have experienced trauma. Due to her own traumatic experiences, while being in foster care, she was motivated to help others by founding and launching the Adopting Courage Foundation and writing her own book, Adopting Courage: A Survivor’s Guide to Triumph After Trauma.
Michelle has kindly donated several copies of her book to UFC’s students to help them cope with any emotional challenges they may be facing. We are thankful for her passion in making sure other foster youth feel supported and heard. Learn more about Michelle’s incredible foundation by clicking HERE.
