Foster Care Film & Community Engagement Project

The goal of Foster Care Film & Community Engagement Project is to provide role models for youth currently in the foster care system, giving them work experience as well as hope and inspiration for a better future.

Through film and media, we intend to dispel negative stereotypes about foster care by showing how school, extended family, and the kindness of strangers can help a child find their path in life.  By educating general audiences about foster care, we can inspire prospective parents, mentors, or advocates to take action within their communities.
