2022 funding from the Ivy & Roses Community Fund, Inc. will be prioritized for the impact area of youth aging out of the foster care system.  Foster youth between the ages of 18-24 face a great risk of being undereducated and underemployed, as well as experiencing homelessness due to the lack of access to resources that help them maintain their self-sufficiency.

Across the State of Georgia, nearly 12,000 children between the ages of 0 and 18 years are in foster care. Once many of these children age out of the system, they rely on the support of community organizations like the Ivy & Roses Community Fund to ensure their success. “Fostering Youth Success” will align our programmatic and funding support with this critical area of need. To learn more or become a partner, contact our Programs Chair.
