iFoster’s Keeping Youth Connected During COVID-19

iFoster > iFoster Programs > iFoster’s Keeping Youth Connected During COVID-19

What iFoster is doing to keep foster youth connected during the crisis.

Below is a two-minute update from iFoster’s CEO & Co-Founder, Serita Cox on our cell phone and laptop programs that are helping to connect disconnected foster youth in California.

 

 

  • The #1 need reported by foster youth during this crisis is the technology to communicate.

 

  • Over 40,000 foster youth in California can no longer attend school, visit with social workers, therapists and extended family.

 

  • Over the past 3 weeks, iFoster has delivered over 5,000 devices to ensure our young people are connected.

 

If you are a foster youth in need, know a young person, or can help us rise to the challenge of ensuring ALL foster youth can communicate, you can reach us at support@ifoster.org.
