“Every day, 1,200 kids enter foster care in the United States.” Together We Rise is a non-profit that changes the way they experience the system.
On November 12, 2017, I will be hosting holiday mini-sessions at Yorba Regional Park. The entire session fee will be donated to Together We Rise for their scholarship program. See information here – as well as additional packages offered.
I cannot imagine for one second what these kids go through and I applaud the hearts of those that can and do open their homes and hearts for these kids.
But what happens to kids when they “age out” of the system? I can’t even imagine the difficulty unless by some miracle they get lucky with a foster family that can continue to support them and pay for their school. What are their options? How are they going to work and go to school? It must feel really hopeless and scary! Together We Rise has partnered with the Fund ll Foundation (Family Fellowship) to support youth in foster care with financial, educational, and wrap around support. They invest up to $90,000 per student.
I absolutely love the work that Together We Rise does for kids in the foster program and I hope you will join me in showing them some love this holiday season.
Also visit their website to see how else you can help! There are a lot of really cool and fun programs for which you can volunteer to help!
