ABOUT FOSTER SKILLS

What Makes Us Different

A former foster youth founded and is at the helm of Foster Skills.

We know the mindsets of these children. We use that knowledge to develop programs that will fit the children--instead of the other way around. Our key to meaningful change is understanding first--programming second.

We see that there are lots of programs and resources for foster children, but they are fragmented, disconnected. We endeavor to bridge these gaps, and connect these organizations both to foster youth and to each other.
