Youth Stories

Did you ever wonder what it was like to be in foster care?  Or how young people find strength and resilience after losing a parent, experiencing a crime, living with strangers? Many of our youth have overcome great difficulties to become successful young adults with bright futures. Meet Jessica, whose determination earned her a full scholarship to Northwestern. Meet Ann, who earned a $14,000 scholarship to attend school in New York. Meet Anastasia, who found the support to go to college.

These are just a few of the incredible stories we have of teens who have left foster care with a solid foundation and ready to do great things in the world. We are very proud of the success our youth have had and want to make sure their success is possible for all youth in foster care.
