GET TO KNOW US

Who are we?

Fostering Connections is a nonprofit organization founded in 2019 that uplifts local children and youth impacted by foster care or trauma by providing needed essentials, educational programs, and community connections.  Aubrie Simpson-Gotham, a local educator, founded our organization to help all foster youth reach their full potential and connect volunteers and community leaders to opportunities to assist foster families in providing stable, loving homes for children in transition.

 

We strongly believe that all children have unique gifts and talents to share with the world and need to know that they deserve to feel loved and valued by their family and supported by their community. Our volunteer Board of Directors and Advisory Council consists of caring community leaders who are passionate about helping youth in foster care and foster parents make family feel like home. We are a diverse group of professionals. Several of our board members are currently foster parents or have served in that capacity.
