About iFoster

iFoster is a national non-profit with a mission of providing life-changing resources to children being raised outside of their biological homes.

Children in foster and kinship care need the same resources and opportunities as children being raised by biological parents. Tragically, foster children receive on average less than 50% of what the USDA says is the average cost of raising a child.

iFoster is Bridging the Gap

iFoster is making this happen by building a bridge between the child welfare system and the corporations, foundations, organizations and individuals who can help them succeed. iFoster is building the largest and most inclusive online community of people and organizations raising foster children and youth, with over 40,000 members in all 50 states enabling iFoster to reach nearly all children and youth in care through its members. On behalf of this community, iFoster forms partnerships with hundreds of companies, government agencies, non-profits, and foundations who can supply the critical resources, supports and opportunities these children and youth need to succeed.

1. iFoster provides tangible Resources like laptops, tutoring, eye glasses, and more.

2. Core to iFoster is service.
Our Resources and Supports are available 24/7 online and accessible via computer, smartphone or tablet. Every member personalizes their iFoster experience by setting their preferences in their personal My Account. iFoster assists by Suggesting Resources and placing them directly in a Member's My Account. And iFoster ensures that Members get the Resources they want and are eligible for. iFoster has formed partnerships with every business, agency or non-profit providing a resource. If a Member ever runs into trouble accessing a resource, iFoster will escalate the issue with the appropriate partner to resolve it.

3. iFoster provides supports to Transition-Age Youth.
A personal digital assistant for transition-age youth, a secure digital locker, rewards for achievements and a jobs training program that's a pipeline to permanent jobs with our Employer partners. Youth can get everything they need to succeed by simply registering and getting their own personal assistant.

4. iFoster provides job opportunities for Transition-Age Youth.
iFoster is partnering with employers in the $620 Billion Grocery Industry to provide job opportunities for foster youth aging out of the system. The iFoster Jobs Program provides opportunities for full-time and part-time jobs that come with benefits, scholarships and tuition reimbursement, and career advancement.
