Our Programs

Did you know...

Foster Care to Success provides $15M in funding for college, training and student support programs annually.

Studies show young adults rely on their families for emotional support and some financial assistance until they are 26 years old.

So what happens to foster youth who age out of the system when they’re younger than 26?

Annually, approximately 5,000 turn to Foster Care to Success (FC2S) for the support they cannot get from a parent or guardian – like financial backing for college in the form of scholarships and grants, care packages and family-like encouragement, academic and personal mentoring, and help with internships and employment readiness skills.

Comprehensive, Family-like Support

Every student receives not only financial assistance but mentoring, career coaching, care packages, and birthday and holiday cards – AND they can call us 24-7 if they need to.
