Sponsor our Food for Families Program

One of the most pressing client obstacles during this pandemic is access to food. Over the past two months we have created a multi-dimensional food assistance program, partnering with large corporations, high-end caterers and local restaurants. With your help, we can build a sustainable food program for our clients struggling to feed their family right now.

Join our Corporate Mentorship Program

Developed in tandem with Guggenheim Partners, our 12-month helps our American Dream Program scholars prepare for their post-college career. Unlike their non-foster care peers, Mentorship Program Fellows do not have the professional connections or expendable financial resources to engage in internships and build valuable, supportive networks. This program allows these motivated scholars to see (and literally step into) a professional world that we take for granted.
