About The Give and Care Foundation

The Give and Care Foundation firmly believes that all children deserve unconditional love, guidance, and a sense of family. We are committed to investing in the lives of children and youth in foster case and adoption by creating a community that cultivates civic engagement, team building, and leadership. We live out our mission by providing program opportunitites for children and youth to engage in meaningful character development, athletics, academic support and the arts.

Vision: The Give and Care Foundation strives to enrich the lives of foster care youth to develop well rounded, successful adults/leaders that actively engage their community and reach their full potential.


Mission: The Give and Care Foundation challenges youth to take an active role in their own futures by fostering a sense of community and family in which youth can thrive by providing opportunities for youth to be goal driven, healthy, and productive individuals today and in the future.


Why it is Essential to Help?

Nationally, each year, an estimated 21,720 young people “age out” of the U.S. foster care system. Many are only 18 years old and still need support and services. Several foster care alumni studies have shown that without a lifelong connection to a caring adult, these older youth are often left vulnerable and unprepared for adulthood.  Of foster care youth “aged out” of the system each year:

  • 54% earn a high school diploma
  • 02% earn a bachelor’s degree or higher
  • 84% become a parent,
  • 51% are unemployed,
  • 30% revive public assistance
  • 30% have no health insurance

Currently, 513,000 children access the foster care system daily. Of these children, half will exit foster care after one year, and 58 percent of all children in care, are children of color. 

Sadly, it is estimated that if nothing changes with the current foster care system by 2020:

  • More than 10.5 million children will spend some time in foster care
  • More than 300,000 children will age out of our foster care system, some in poor health, and many unprepared for success in the workforce or to pursue higher education
  • 75,000 foster care youth, who aged out of the system, will experience homelessness

Given the statistics on youth in foster care, older youth are less likely to be adopted or find permanency. Many will age out of foster care with little to no support. The Give and Care Foundation is especially committed to these children, as we truly believe a child should not have to wait to be adopted or find permanency in order to experience a high quality life full of opportunities and caring adults. We address the needs of every child regardless of their circumstances and meet them where they are at.

The Give and Care Foundation is especially committed to these children, as we truly believe a child should not have to wait to be adopted or find permanency in order to experience a high quality life full of opportunities and caring adults.
