"We cannot always  
build the future for our youth, but  
we can build our youth for the future."

Franklin D. Roosevelt

We are here to make a difference.

Every child deserves the chance to succeed. We are doing our part to make that happen.

Foster Skills addresses a simple fact: today's foster youth, through no fault of their own, are paying the price for either the shortcomings of individuals, or systemic inaction and imprudent action--and many times both. Developmentally unprepared and with few guaranteed supports, many foster youth will go on to present enormous challenges to their communities.

Foster Skills aims to shape lives and build futures by helping foster youth beat odds and grow into productive citizens.

We empower foster youth to beat the odds and achieve life success.
