Why do we walk? It is estimated that 12 million people have experienced foster care in the U.S. Many of us left care without a strong community and still experience the effects of child abuse and trauma well into adulthood. Foster Care Alumni of America empowers our peers to build a strong community and use their collective voice for change.
When you support our FosterWalk events, it benefits our national organization and our local chapters. Funds raised from the FosterWalks empower foster care alumni through peer support, leadership development and advocacy.
Costs: The walk is free and there are no fundraising minimums, but donations are welcome.
