Our Vision

Foster Greatness challenges the conventional foster care social services model by empowering young people to take charge of their own lives, instead of imposing limiting definitions of success. We believe the traditional benchmarks of success—securing any job, being part of the 3% of foster youth who graduate college, and avoiding homelessness, incarceration, or early parenthood—are unacceptably low.

Our platform, designed by and for young people with foster care experience, aims to redefine relationships and broaden life experiences. Foster Greatness has implemented a relationship-centered, technology-driven, and data-informed approach, enabling young people to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to build fulfilling lives.

Our efforts are cultivating a new generation of professionals skilled in trust-based relationship principles and trauma-informed practices. These individuals are redefining social services and case management standards, empowering those affected by foster care to create a brighter future for themselves and generations to come.

Our History

In 2014, we started Doing Good Works as a way to provide resources and job opportunities to people who have lived experience in foster care. Over the last 8 years, we have worked with thousands of young people by providing employment opportunities, training and/or resources. 

Even when internships finished or training was complete, we stayed in contact with many of the people who have been part of Doing Good Works over the years. We reached out to them to celebrate and recognize accomplishments. They reached out to us when they were in need of support, advice or just a safe person to talk to. 

Those 8 years have also given us access into many of the best practices available to people who are in need of resources, tools and self-development programs. 

Foster Greatness is a culmination of everything we’ve learned over the last 8 years. It is a community that no one ages out of and can be accessed from any device. It provides stability for someone in need of a free or low-cost resource anywhere in the United States. It is a safe place to learn and practice self-development skills across 16 focus areas. It also provides the connection to Community Partners and tools that allow users to apply those skills and thrive. All of this can be done within a community where users can find connection, be recognized for their accomplishments and have a place to belong, regardless of where they are in their journey.
