Providing a pathway to success for youth from foster-care
The Foundation is a Sacramento Ca., based non-profit organization, formerly known as The Glass Slipper since 1997. We provide mentoring support and holistic programs for youth who have experienced foster care. In honor of our 25th anniversary, in 2022, we began the process of becoming supportive college housing providers for youth transitioning from foster care. We are in the last phase and on track to open in 2023.
We have witnessed the significant impact of relational support, so mentoring remains the heartbeat of our work. Through a trauma-informed community of mentors and coaches, we provide a circle of support to empower and equip youth for brighter futures.
FOR THE GIRLS
This short video was filmed in 2013 and provides a glimpse into The Glass Slipper ten years back. The lovely young woman featured is now a young adult enjoying a successful career. Her smile has not changed and we are honored to remain a part of her life. Throughout our site, where faces are visible, models are used to protect the confidentiality of youth in the foster care system.
