Foster Youth Grants & Support
Our Fundraising Page
Foster youth need emotional and financial support in order to achieve their potential. Many face challenges including housing and food insecurity, which contributes to less than 10% of foster youth ever earning a college degree. More than a quarter will be homeless within four years of exiting the system.
Many programs in California support former foster youth, however, application processes and waitlists can often delay access to immediate support that our students are in dire need of.
These funds will be used to provide emergency resources as needed; funding for books, school supplies, assistance paying health and activities fees required to access campus resources, food, and mini grants.
Please help support our MJC foster youth students.
