Fair Futures Gets $10 million!


Fair Futures did it!! A campaign with over 100 organizations and 45 youth leaders, Fair Futures has advocated to provide NYC youth aged 14-26 in and aging out of foster care with a long-term coach and academic supports. With a public/private partnership supported by several foundations, NYC has decided to invest $10 million to scale critical programs to help ensure youth achieve their full potential during vital milestones of their lives! 

The coalition built tremendous momentum with strong leadership from young people, ACS, Councilmembers and staff from across the child welfare field; by holding rallies in every borough; garnering weekly news coverage, and testifying regularly. Bravo to the commitment and engagement of all the coalition members! 

This is the first step towards making New York the first in the country to provide comprehensive, long-term academic and social & emotional supports to foster youth aged 14 to 26! A special thanks to all of the organizations involved in advocacy and to the youth leaders who made their voices heard to make this happen!
