At 18 years old, I aged out of foster care.
I found my purpose in giving back, advocating for better outcomes for youth. The Pennsylvania Youth Advisory Board, the Philadelphia Compact Youth Committee, Youth MOVE and Systems of Care are some of the phenomenal groups I have had the pleasure of being apart of.
In March of 2013, myself and 7 other alum of care founded the Pennsylvania Chapter of Foster Care Alumni of America (FCAA). There is nothing comparable to the level of support and encouragement I have received from my peers at FCAA.
Today I am a college graduate, a national director for FCAA, a child welfare employee, a wife and a proud foster momma.
Let's wear our BLUE and show current & former foster youth that there is a community that believes in their SUCCESS. We are Foster Strong!
Thank you for supporting our team in the 2016 FosterWalk & for being a champion for foster care!
