Matching Challenge

No Kid Graduates to the Streets

Looking to forestall the foster care to homelessness pipeline, the Violence Intervention Program is seeking to fund their new “No Kid Graduates to the Streets” program. 

With a fundraising goal of $20 million, VIP hopes to revitalize an antiquated foster care system, by building out IT networks and establishing more access to services for children who have been moved out of home placements. 

Donated funds will also be used to supplement families who enter the system primarily due to poverty that results in a fundamental inability to care for their biological children.

VIP’s board has generously contributed $100,000 to its ongoing fundraising campaign. Every donation will be doubled, with 90% going straight to children and families. 


The mission of the Violence Intervention Program is to protect and treat all victims of family violence and sexual assault, and for 30 years, has been executing and expanding that vision.
