Our runners are supporting kids in foster care who need permanent, loving families.
THANK YOU RUNNERS! We deeply appreciate your hard work and fundraising efforts.
You Gotta Believe! The Older Child Adoption & Permanency Movement (YGB) is a unique agency located in New York City that connects foster youth (close to aging out of the system alone) to permanent, loving families.
We do this work because we believe everyone needs and deserves family. Without family, we struggle to overcome economic hardship, health and housing challenges, and personal stress. Family anchors us and helps us to become our personal best.
YGB works with the most vulnerable youth - youth who are older, LGBTQ, have been in the system a long time, and/or have mental or behavioral health issues.
The end result of this work is priceless - connecting youth to family is a powerful gift that lasts a lifetime. Meet some of our recent families by visiting here:
