Expanding Needs and Expanding Aid 2012
In 2012, the Foster Youth Transition Foundation was able to provide seven students with laptop computers, flash drives, computer cases and gift cards towards software purchases. We also provided a foster teen with a TI-84 calculator. We purchased start up pots and pans, bake ware and food containers for a youth entering into an independent living program. We provided a stroller for a young mother in foster care, and a phone for a foster teen so she can call her child’s daycare from her school. We provided a young man with gift cards to Macy’s for work clothes, Giant for food, and a Metro Smart card for transportation costs so he can get to his job interviews. We also provided a digital camera for a foster youth studying photography, a music keyboard for a youth studying music and a kindle fire and case for a foster youth recovering from surgery.
