MISSION
STATEMENT
The mission of Fostering
Goodwill is to act as a
resource for aging out
youth in foster care and
assist this population as
they transition away from
the state’s care and
become independent
members of society.  This
includes educating the
youth about their rights,
informing them about
available resources within
the community and
assisting them in
completing tasks
necessary to be on their
own.  This includes
helping them secure basic
needs such as food,
housing, transportation,
employment, education,
etc.

- For the first time, research has been done showing that foster care children are in
considerably worse health than other children. The findings also present serious
implications for pediatricians by suggesting that foster care placement is a risk factor
for health problems in childhood.  Click

American Academy of Pediatrics.
- Reaching out in kindness could help those who struggle with mental illness:  See
the article here.
