Help Kristiona give back to the youth in her community

Posted Feb 25, 2022
Every year, youth of all ages transition into a new home in the foster care system. We would love to come together as an organization and help one another in the foster community and remind them that they are loved and important. Our amazing group of alumni, including Kristiona, come together once a year and put boxes together called "Inspire Packages." These are cool boxes that will allow them to store their keepsakes while also being packed with necessary items needed to help ease the transition. Everyone matters and everyone deserves to smile. Thank you for helping put a smile the face of a special person.

Kristiona is 28 years old and lives in CO

Originally, Kristiona was placed in Foster Care at the age of two where she was adopted, only to again be bounced around from foster home to foster home at the age of nine. She was adopted and then returned to foster care where she aged out. Kristiona became independent and started her college journey and has been successful at it despite everyday obstacles and medical issues. Kristiona has graduated from CMU with her Bachelor's degree and is looking at continuing her education to work with children. She currently works with an early head start preschool as a teacher and enjoys every moment. Kristiona is committed to breaking a generational cycle of abuse and lack of education. Her ultimate goal is to own and run a summer camp for children in foster care, that is not only fun, but can also provide them with therapeutic and mentoring supports.
