Support Our Foster Youth Grant 

The Purpose of the Support Our Foster Youth (SOFY) Grant is to provide small scholarships to young adults in and from foster care between the ages of 18-25 that are enrolled in Community College, University or Vocational Institutions in DC, Maryland and Virginia, helping them with expenses that may otherwise prevent them from finishing their education.  Students will be able to use these funds for expenses such as food, gas and electric, bus fare, daycare, rent, tuition and other living expenses.
