Kady Titus spent 4 years in Alaska's Foster Care System.
Kady Titus has clear goals related to her future work in child welfare and is well on the path to achieving them. Kady is pursuing her Bachelor’s degree with a double major in Political Science and Social Work. After getting her Master’s in Social Work, Kady plans to create a groundbreaking Transitional Living Program for youth in Alaska that builds on community supports for youth in care, with a particular concentration on Native youth. Kady has dedicated the past eight years of her life to mentoring at-risk youth and has worked in advocacy through the Northwest Network for Youth, and also as a youth counselor for youth at a residential facility. I loved the way Kady described the responsibility of alumnus to pass down their knowledge to younger generations. “As a foster care alumnus I believe it is my responsibility to pass down what I have learned to others who are still in care, just like a traditional family passes down their knowledge”. Kady is an Orphan Foundation of America Scholars. As a fellow OFA scholar, I am proud to consider her part of my OFA family.
