There are over 29,000 foster children who "age out" of the system each year without families, support or even a place to call home. A system that once protected these vulnerable children and youth have now forgotten their most basic needs. It is our duty to fight for these kids and give them a chance to stand up and face adversitiies once again and help them find the strength, continue to become self sufficient individuals and give back to the abused and neglected children and youth who are coming behind them.
A former foster child; I know the struggles that each of these kids face.
Help me continue to fund the "Transitions" program through the Central Missouri Foster Care & Adoption Association. The program reaches out to each aging out foster youth in central Missouri with the opportunity to attend prom, graduation and to pursue post-secondary education with the help of our mentors who follow them through their junior year of college. CMFCAA gives them clothing, dorm essentials, bus passes, food vouchers, laptop, lodging, basic skills training and much more to make it on thier own.

We won't forget the forgotten. Will you show them they are "Forgotten No More?"
