Georgia Chapter: Foster Care Alumni of America
About this resource“It doesn’t matter what cards you were dealt in life. All that matters is how you play your hand.” The Georgia Chapter was chartered by Jessica Ushry in June 2016. The Georgia Chapter focuses on connections with former alumni in addition to tackling the homeless foster youth crisis in Georgia. FCAA GA Chapter partnered with Dekalb Housing Authority to assist young adults ages 18-25 who are homeless and in need of rental assistance. As a result, 38 youth were housed through the pilot. FCAA GA continues to work with the young adults who were housed through the pilot program to connect them with supportive resources.
