Be The Difference

"I'm so glad FAM exists because after foster care it just felt like I was forgotten."
~FAM alum

When a child enters the foster care system, as a community, we believe they are now safe and that's it.
But what happens after foster care? What happens if a child doesn't achieve permanency with a family?
Too often, a youth ages out of foster care feeling alone and forgotten. They struggle emotionally, financially, and physically. Despite their struggles they still have dreams, goals, and amazing willpower to keep going.
This is where you come in!
When a young adult is reminded that they are loved, valued, and matter, they begin to open up and see their true potential.

You can be the difference for our alumni.
