Together We Rise
National Organization Raising Funds to Help Secure Housing for Foster Youths Affected by Campus Closures
Together We Rise, which engages in fundraising collaborations to help offer assistance and positive experiences to young people in foster care, is looking to help current and former foster youths who are temporarily displaced by the closure of a college campus due to coronavirus.
What Foster Youth Shadow Day Meant to Me
On June 4, 2019, I had the privilege to shadow Congresswoman Yvette Clark (D-N.Y.) and advocate for change within our national child welfare system. This event was granted to me through the National Foster Youth Institute’s Shadow Day program, which gives former and current foster youth a chance to find their voice and speak up for change.
