Allies for Teens In Foster Care was started to address the appalling statistics related to kids most in need of care from the community. Over the past two years, with the generosity of the community, thousands of dollars worth of goods and gift cards have been donated to group homes in the area.

Allies believes the community would better help these vulnerable, talented kids if they knew how. Allies strives to be a bridge from the resources in the community to the teens and adult caregivers, who desperately need them.
