Together We Rise

Together We Rise is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of America's foster children by funding programs that give them a sense of "normalcy, comfort, and belonging"  such as purchasing bikes for foster children, providing sports equipment and sports camp opportunities for them, and providing resources to help  youth who age out of the foster care system. 

The statistics for youth who age out of foster care are very sobering, as I've referred to previously, and as you will see from the following clip:

What a great organization! When our FD wanted to play softball, the fee was $75, then uniform cost was at least $20, then she was left handed so a glove was another $75! Had she lived in a group home, she wouldnt have been able to participate
