A $100,000 Goal

Philanthropy is the lifeblood that makes it possible for the Alliance to provide legal and social services free of charge to children, young adults and families affected by foster care. 

The pandemic, systemic racism, and economic disparities have deeply impacted these families.

To boost its efforts in 2021, the Alliance is seeking $100,000 total in donations from the community so they can provide additional hours of free services to help kids and families emerge from the pandemic.

Begin to Build a Relationship

We know you care about where your money goes and how it is used. Connect with this organization’s leadership in order to begin to build this important relationship. Your email will be sent directly to this organization’s Director of Development and/or Executive Director.

The Alliance was a blessing to me. There aren’t many people who would go out of their way to be there for you in the middle of the night, and be in your corner when you don’t know what to do. I had never experienced that kind of care before. People think that if you’re in foster care, you’re an outcast. But really, we’re special. We’ve been through a lot, and we come out the other side somehow – we are strong. We know what it means to survive. Every day, we heal and do our best to give back love.
