Our Impact

Good News: You improved life for over 53,720 children and youth in foster care in 2022

FosterClub’s network of supporters and partners responded with groundbreaking generosity in 2022 to expand FosterClub’s impact in two missional ways:


$2.05+ million distributed directly to young people

In 2022, the pandemic continued to impact vulnerable young people — especially those who aged out of foster care without family support. We put cash directly in the hands of young people who need it.

Peer Navigation Services

When young people can support their peers through challenges, everyone benefits! Our amazing Peer Navigators helped their younger peers connect to resources as they worked to get back on track post-pandemic.

Training for Young People

We were excited to be back to in-person training events, providing young people with Peer-Led Training in Oregon, Montana, and Missouri. We continued to deliver online, too - enabling us to deliver training to thousands of young people in 2022.

"Passionate organizations like FosterClub are the reason I am able to attend college today and strive for a brighter tomorrow. I know that one day I will be able to pay it forward to the next generation.”

-- Richard, 2022 Outstanding Young Leader



The harsh impacts of foster care fall disproportionately on young people of marginalized communities, including youth who identify as LGBTQIA+ or as Black, Indigenous, or people of color (BIPOC). We deepened our work to achieve justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) for young people involved with foster care.

Aging Out of Foster Care

In collaboration with the Annie E. Casey Foundation and national partners, we launched the Journey to Success campaign to improve outcomes for older youth who age out of foster care.

Defending the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA)

Thirteen Native Leaders’ contributed to FosterClub’s amicus brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court voicing support for upholding ICWA.

"We’re now able to help young people quickly; we can get funds to them within a few days - helping make sure they can stay housed, have enough food and stay connected. ”

-- Natalie, 2020 AllStar

The Magic Sauce: over 3,000 hours of service contributed by our Lived Experience Leaders

All of FosterClub’s work is powered by young people with lived experience in foster care who we call Lived Experience Leaders. We think you’ll call them amazing and inspirational! Meet a few of our young leaders:

It’s something special to know that, across America, people care about investing in a brighter future for children and youth who experience foster care. We love sharing the journey with folks like you who share our beliefs:

When young people have the support they need and the opportunity to drive change in their own life, they become self-determined and they do better.

When the system listens to young people, it does better.

We are grateful to you for being a part of the FosterClub movement.

Thank You!
