In 2008, Together We Rise (TWR ) was founded by college students after one of their classmates discovered that their 9 year-old cousin was living in a car. They wanted to do something but they came across some obstacles because they were all under the age of 21. Government agencies denied their help due to Federal regulations, and there were no organizations like TWR that welcomed young people to join their efforts.
The foster care system can be a confusing and sometimes disheartening place, but through fundraising and a network of passionate volunteers, TWR strive to give foster children a brighter future, a sense of normalcy and belonging.
The following touching images are some of TWR’s success stories. Every child needs a home, and every child needs a family.
