The Life After Fund


The Life After Fund

Each year, more than 20,000 young people will age out of foster care.
Each one, without continued supports or services, will be set out on their own after the system failed to reunite them with their families or place them in permanent homes. We want all individuals impacted by foster care to know we are still here and have created this fund to be a forever resource for each of them. Help us continue to grant life changing wishes like these.

“I am lost for words on how to express my deepest gratitude. You are one of the few people in my life who believe in my endeavors. These acts of kindness give me the confidence to purse a higher education and strengthened my skills as a licensed vocational nurse. I love working in the medical field and I am extremely fortunate to have gained these skills to provide safe quality care for my patients. I am forever grateful for this opportunity and know this is truly a blessing, especially coming from humble beginning as a minority, former foster youth, and a single mother trying to beat the odds against me.”

We are committing at least $100,000 in support for young people who need us and we’re asking you to help us give even more.
Every donation made to this fund will be applied to wishes from young people that have aged out of foster care. They may include rental assistance, groceries, utility bills, clothing, tuition assistance and more. We will update this page as the fund is distributed. Please consider a gift - of any size - to help us continue showing up, and showing love, for as long as they need us.
