Milton Foster Children’s Fund provides unduplicated resources for foster children, ages 0-21, to give them a sense of normalcy in a situation that is anything but normal. Resources may include financial support for unmet needs and activities, life-skills workshops such as budgeting, self-care, and nutrition, and access to free clothing and accessories through The Hanger, a project within Milton Foster.
Our program is great due to the children we serve and the incredible volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure the children’s unique needs are met. Through them we are inspired to do more for foster youth in this community who have experienced trauma, chaos, and instability for much of their lives through no fault of their own.
Program needs include adult volunteers for The Hanger and Teen Life Skills and Events, new full size toiletry items, new white socks for guys, hoodies, and $25 gift cards to Walmart and Amazon.
Foster youth who emancipate from the child welfare system are more than twice as likely to be homeless, unemployed, drug addicted, trafficked, or incarcerated.
“MFCF paid for a CNA class towards my nursing career. I want to help people and can through nursing. As a foster kid, it can be hard to do normal things like other teens.” — CH, Teen MFCF Funding Recipient
