When we began our journey of supporting young adults who experienced foster care, it quickly became apparent that a fresh approach was needed if we were to achieve lasting, meaningful change.
Our early efforts to address the challenges that result from experience in foster care, such as providing employment opportunities, or suitable housing, didn’t have the lasting influence we were hoping for. We listened and learned alongside leaders who have lived experience in foster care to create long-term solutions.
We used their advice to embark on a new relationship-focused, data-driven approach to provide a permanent impact for those we support.
By looking to our lived-experience leaders as experts, educating our community on the effects of trauma, and using a credible messenger framework, Foster Greatness gives every individual the foundation they need to go from surviving to thriving.
