The Something Special Fund Program provides support for foster children that their parent will not or cannot provide. Special circumstances often arise in a child’s life where they need additional financial support for activities such as sports equipment, music classes, a class photo, or application fees to apply for college. Because of this lack of funding, many foster youth are unable to fully experience everything life has to offer them at this age which is so critical to a sense of belonging. The Something Special Fund Program was designed to provide foster youth with additional funds so that they don’t have to sit on the sidelines because they don’t have a prom dress or suit or because they can’t afford sheet music, art supplies or a class ring. Financial support is provided on an ‘as needed’ basis and upon the request of a social worker.
Special thanks to the Rivers of Hope Foundation for their generous support of the Something Special Fund.
