CASA of the Pikes Peak Region, Inc.


What

Milton Foster Children’s Fund (MFCF) 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 MFCF.

Why

Foster children are removed from their homes, for their own safety, and placed in safe but unfamiliar environments, which is a very traumatic experience. CASA’s MFCF provides positive experiences including funding for camp, instruments, sports, driver’s education, and shopping at The Hanger for free clothes and accessories. Our goal is to build growth, self-esteem, and resiliency to help them thrive.

Needs

Program needs include adult volunteers for The Hanger and Events, new full size toiletry items, hoodies, and $25 gift cards to Walmart and Amazon.

Did You Know

Foster youth who emancipate from the child welfare system are twice as likely to be homeless, unemployed, drug addicted, trafficked, pregnant, or incarcerated.

“Through your donation, I was able to receive a gift from my football program's senior night just like my peers did. I greatly enjoyed sharing this experience with them. I'll cherish the memories made with my fellow peers.” — A high school senior in foster care in Colorado Springs
