One Simple Wish Advisory Council

One Simple Wish wants to ensure that we effectively address the needs and wants of those that have been, and continue to be impacted, by our nation’s foster care system. Our goal is to connect people who want to help with those who need it and to do it in a respectful and positive way.

One Simple Wish is an independent nonprofit that has no formal ties to the child welfare system and does not have any government contracts. Our Advisory Council is made up of young people, 18 and over, that have experienced foster care.
