Fostering Futures Initiative

In 2014, San Diego Grantmakers became fiscal sponsor for the San Diego Fostering Futures Initiative (FFI), a cross-sector collaboration that includes TAY Funders members and cross-sector stakeholders. It is focused on supporting the needs of transitioning foster youth, particularly related to implementation of the California Fostering Connections to Success Act, which extends public benefits to foster youth beyond the age of 18. SDG is facilitating the design and implementation of a community/stakeholder engagement plan.

Drawing on information gathered from nonprofits that serve foster youth, San Diego County social workers, and current and former foster youth, FFI identified the themes and top priorities to improve outcomes for youth through changes to, and increased utilization of, extended foster care services.

The Fostering Futures Initiative is supported by grants from The California Wellness Foundation, The Parker Foundation, LJ Galinson Advised Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation, and S. Bernstein Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation.
