The people, governance practices, and partners that make the organization tick.
Ms. Jessica L Angelique
I entered Foster care as an infant, and remained there until I aged-out into homelessness at the age of 16. I lived in fifteen different foster homes, group homes and one Orphanage. I attended seventeen different schools and went through a revolving door of 28-Social Workers, none of who knew much about foster care, the signs of severe physical abuse, sexual abuse or psychological trauma.
I created Foster Care In The U.S. to address the needs of homeless foster care, and at-risk youth and young adults.

Equity strategiesLast updated: 11/17/2021
- We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
- We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
- We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
- We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
- We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
- We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
