Foster America is a non-profit organization with a mission to improve the lives of America’s most vulnerable children: those in foster care or at risk of entering the system. We are developing a pipeline of leaders and innovators and building a movement to transform the child welfare system.
Our children deserve better.
We are failing our nation’s most vulnerable children and families. This child welfare crisis contributes to society’s most intractable problems: poverty, school dropouts, homelessness, and crime.
Better results require extraordinary leaders.
At the heart of Foster America is a fellowship program that attracts talented professionals with crucial skills in data, technology, design, strategy, and finance to the child welfare system. With expertise from a variety of sectors, these fellows work on projects that help keep families safely together and make foster care more loving and far less traumatic.
Fellows' innovations are transforming child welfare.
Foster America fellows take on full-time, 18-month leadership roles at government and nonprofit child welfare agencies across the country. With our support, fellows lead innovative reform projects that improve the lives of our nation's most vulnerable children.
