For our “Big Give” segment this month, we are featuring Together We Rise, a nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming the way youth navigate through the foster care system in America. I’ve invited the Donor Relations Manager, Steven Macias, to tell us more about the organization.
We’re also going to discuss the state of foster care in our country.
On any given day, there are around 438,000 children in foster care in the USA. Almost a half million kids without a forever home…
That is a major issue in our country and some parents are taking action to help.
Today, we’re chatting with Jillian Johnsrud on why she and her husband decided to become foster parents to 4 children in addition to becoming parents to two biological kids. We’re also going to discuss how she and her husband embraced minimalism and achieved financial independence in their 30’s.
