FosterClub was created for — and is driven by — young people who experience foster care.
Together, we can make being in foster care not suck.
Foster care provides a critical safety net. But being in the system brings its own unique challenges for young people.
Being in foster care can be tough. With resources and connections, young people can make it and thrive - and maybe find a way to make the journey through foster care a bit better for the next kid.
“FosterClub allowed me to find the support I needed at a really difficult time. Being in foster care was hard, but having peers support me through it made it so so much easier. I can't imagine what it things might have been like without FosterClub.”

FosterClub does two things:
Provide direct support to young people experiencing foster care.
FosterClub's peer-delivered services for youth include camps and conferences, tip sheets and publications, online spaces to connect, and more.
Drive change in the child welfare system informed by lived experience.
Our three-pronged approach places Lived Expereinece (LEx) Leaders in a position to effect public policy, child welfare practice, and public awareness.
