Many Ways to Give
Since 1999, the Foster Youth Alliance has fought for a brighter future for the thousands of Alameda County youth in foster care. Our advocacy has led to the creation of millions of dollars of services and programs for youth in vital areas including housing, counseling, vocational training, higher education, and mentoring.
No way could we do it without you – the hundreds of committed citizens who each year give to FYA and declare their commitment to a brighter future for Alameda County’s foster youth.
