Foster Progress was able to host their Horizon Benefit in person this year at the Columbia Yacht Club in Chicago. Foster Progress empowers Illinois youth currently or formerly in foster care to attain a college degree and transition into adulthood successfully by providing mentorship, advocacy, and educational opportunity. We heard stories of transformation from youth formerly in care and celebrated the achievements of the students as well as thanking and recognizing mentors and volunteers. Everyone came together to learn more, give to the programs that impact so many through a silent auction and monthly donations, and even do a little karaoke and dancing. You can join the work by helping them expand their programs.
Foster Progress also formerly announced their partnership with Traverse. Traverse programs utilize an innovative new model to help foster youth discover they are not stuck in victimhood, but have strengths and talents to offer the world. Any young person who has experienced foster care in Illinois is invited to apply. Adventure Therapy is a therapeutic intervention that uses planned and structured activities of an experiential, risk taking, and challenging nature.
Foster Progress continues to grow and impact many and it is a privilege to partner to help them share their story!
A visual storyteller that focuses on human emotion & connection. I help families, individuals, & couples to capture their beautiful messy story.
I also partner with humanitarian, non-for-profit organizations, and NGOs share their stories with intention, dignity, & excellence, so they can have a greater impact on their communities.
