The Stewardship Foundation believes that higher education provides the best pathway to success for former foster youth who have aged out of the child welfare system. We provide sponsorships to foster youth in college that enable each student to meet the needs of everyday life that are beyond financial aid. By facilitating the attainment of college degrees, this crucial support increases the likelihood that former foster youth will create their own success.
