Helping foster youth go to college

Students at Celebration Graduation event
Students at Celebration Graduation event

97% of our recent class of College Readiness students in our program four or more years graduated from high school and 67% were ready to enter 4-year colleges. We accepted a new class of close to 40 College Sponsorship students and have engaged them over the summer with orientation classes, and an overnight retreat with our college counselors to prepare them for their freshmen year of college. These students will receive four plus years of support from UFC including financial and emotional support.

We celebrated our students graduation from high school at our annual Celebration Graduation event. Over 135 graduating foster youth in Los Angeles who are all headed to college attended the event.
