INFO : Foster UP is a Peer Support Group for individuals that were raised in foster care. (Those who were raised in Kinship Care are welcomed to join as well ).

Foster Up is a group designed to create a safe space for individuals who have encountered the Child Welfare System at one point in their lives.

The hope for this group is to work towards empowering those who have been in care. As well as de-stigmatize the negative stereotypes surrounding foster kids.

Individuals will have the opportunity to share their stories/experiences in the system.
We will discuss current issues within the Child Welfare System and work towards advocating for change.
