For students who were in foster care, college can be a path to earning a living wage and breaking the cycle of poverty and system involvement for their families. Unfortunately, less than 3% of youth who were in foster care ever make it to college graduation. Through Bridging Success, the Maricopa Community Colleges have been working for four years to support these youth as they attempt to defy that statistic and reach their educational dreams, but they face many barriers. Unexpected expenses and emergency situations often take them out of the classroom and derail their plans. Your donation will go to support an emergency fund that can help them stay on course to their goals.
