Meet Natalie

For children that have grown up in foster care, the thought of going to university or college can seem out of reach. Thanks to generous donations, Natalie will graduate from university. "Without you and your donation to the scholarship fund, I wouldn't be doing this at all." You can help make a child in care's dream of a better life a reality by financially supporting a Family and Children's Services Foundation Scholarship.
