Help with paying for Crystal's needed braces

Posted Oct 25, 2023
My name is Crystal, and I am a very proud Mother of 2. I've been in and out of the foster system since I was a child, and I am proud of what I have achieved. I have prioritized my family and I am very proud of what I have accomplished. However, I have neglected my oral health as I focused on my family's needs. My wish would be to get my braces paid for and be a lot more confident and healthy with a brand-new smile!

Crystal is 23 years old and lives in CA

Crystal is a former foster youth who aged out of foster care after turning 18. Crystal has lived experience as a survivor of sexual and physical abuse while living with her biological mother. Crystal had to file a report and was taken from her mother to live with her grandmother since her father was incarcerated. Crystal struggled without having much support or consistency during her childhood and this led to acting out and having to move from foster home to foster home or into group homes. But today, Crystal is creating new paths. She is a mother of two sweet children and works with her partner to give them the home she never had. Crystal loves playing with her children and cherishes her time at home with her family. Crystal looks forward to her future as she learns to grow her family on her own.
