About Us

Foster Youth Rising (formerly Friends of the San Francisco Independent Living Skills Program) is a nonprofit organization, working in partnership with current and former to make sure that individuals leaving the foster care system have the support they need to succeed in living successfully, specifically related to higher education..

We have provided things such as plane tickets for youth who had no money to get to college, removal of braces for foster youth that were no longer eligible for state-sponsored assistance, furniture for college and their kids, and many other things!
