A Laptop to help Manny change the Foster Care World

Posted Feb 11, 2020
As a refugee in America’s foster care system, Manny knows so much, based on his own experience in the system! He is driven to make foster care better and to raise awareness about refugees in care! A laptop for Manny would mean he can stay on task and be organized!

Manny is 16 years old and lives in Syracuse , NY

Manny came to the states as a refugee. He was put into foster care, raised in a group home and has incredible drive. He is so committed to reaching his full potential, going to college and making is community better! In fact, Manny is part of a committee led by and comprised of foster youth. Their mission is to identify the problems with our foster care and make it better for future foster children.
