Centering lived experience in the national conversation

A fundamental part of reforming child welfare is shifting the mental models we each carry with us, the ideas and expectations that shape what we consider important, accept as normal, and believe to be possible. The current and former foster youth we work with have big dreams, bold ideas, and an urgent desire to improve the system to help others like themselves. We work to amplify their voices and share this urgency with leaders and change makers across the country.
