BENEFITING: Foster Care Alumni Of America
EVENT DATE: May 14, 2016
Why do we walk/fundraise/advocate? It's simple. Child abuse in the U.S. is reported every 10 seconds, and the effects can last a lifetime!
Great Expectations (GE) is a program that helps Virginia's current or former foster youth gain access to community college education and transition successfully from higher education to a self-sustaining career. GE works with enrolled students to ensure their success in community college and beyond, connecting them to community resources, scholarship opportunities, and other supports.
By joining FosterWalk2016, we are helping Foster Care Alumni of America to support personal and professional growth for foster care alumni, as well as raise funds to empower them to overcome trauma through informal mentoring, leadership development, scholarship opportunities, and advocacy on both local and national levels. Ultimately, together we are building a safer a stronger community.
Your support is very much appreciated!
