Dental work for Maria a former youth and soon-to-be college graduate

Posted May 15, 2017
Maria a former foster youth and college student who needs a root canal and two crowns and cannot afford all of it. Maria is a soon-to-be college graduate which is a huge accomplishment for an emancipated foster youth. It would be devastating if Maria could not participate in graduation festivities because of the cost of her dental work. While graduating is something to be celebrated she will also soon leave the university which has been a life line of support for many years. It's also a very scary time and nothing makes it scarier than knowing that you are graduating in need of nearly $2,000 of dental work. Please help Maria pay for her essential Dental needs
