EDUCATION IS THE GREAT EQUALIZER

we are purpose-driven servants working to provide every youth in foster care access to a college education

Only 3% of youth from foster care graduate college:

Homelessness

50% of former foster youth are homeless within two years of leaving the system

Incarceration

78% of the current death row population spent time in the foster care system

Placements

Foster youth experience an average of 12 placements in just four years of high school

At a crossroads of graduation or incarceration, the nsoro Foundation steps in to change the course.
