Together We Rise

Together We Rise (TWR) is a non-profit organization located in Brea, California. Their vision is to improve the lives of foster children in America, who are often forgotten and neglected by the public. Through collaboration with community partners TWR is able to bring resources to foster youth and use service-learning activities to educate volunteers on issues surrounding the foster care system.

The state of Virginia has over 1,300 children in foster care waiting to be adopted. We have nearly half a million children in foster care in the United States, 1,600 of them enter the system every day with only what they can fit into two garbage bags. These children are being taken away by strangers and put into other strangers houses. They have often witnessed traumatic experiences like their parents getting arrested. What happens to them now can impact the rest of their lives.

The Sweet Cases program through TWR aims to change the way that kids experience foster care. Check it out;
