Mission:
We believe young adults transitioning from foster care in San Francisco deserve to have the financial and emotional resources they need to build stability and success in their lives. Friends of SF ILSP fills gaps in the resources available to these young adults by providing grants and other opportunities in a manner that acknowledges their potential and their dignity.
Results:
Since our inception in 2005, and with the help of any donors, Friends was able to support more than 170 recipients with over $190,000. In the future, we hope to expand our reach to provide further support these youth.
