Mission

Helping Foster Youth Transition to Independence - The mission of Fostering Goodwill is to act as a resource for aging out youth (ages 17-26) in Kentucky foster care and assist this population as they transition away from the state’s care and become independent members of society. This includes educating the youth about their rights, informing them about available resources within the community and assisting them in completing tasks necessary to be on their own. This includes helping them secure basic needs such as food, housing, transportation, employment, education, etc.
