In this time of rapid adaptation and unknowns, we turn outward. The Fostering Change Fund is ever more critical to young adults aging out of the foster care system in Colorado. This spring, plant a SEED to foster change in our community.

The Fostering Change Fund committee welcomes former foster youth and young adults in Colorado Springs between the ages of 16 and 25 whose case did not result in permanency (return home, relative placement, or adoption) to apply for grants up to $1,500 that will help address their otherwise unmet medical, social, emotional, and education needs. During the first phase of the Fund, grants are limited to individuals. During the second phase of the Fund, grants are open to organizations on a case-by-case basis. Organizations seeking Junior League assistance are encouraged to reach out to the Vice President of Community Outreach, firstname.lastname@example.org.
