Set High Expectations
Too many kids see college as a dream instead of a reality. We are setting high expectations by helping kids get academically ready for college while we help their parents save for future tuition starting in kindergarten.
United Way’s Women United raises funds to help foster youth prepare to be self-sufficient once they leave the foster care system. Our local United Way’s foster youth program includes case management, life skills training and financial support through the Individual Development Account (IDA) program.
Individual Development Accounts (IDAs) are matched savings accounts that help cover basic necessities and education-related expenses for emancipated foster youth.
