OFA is now FOSTER CARE TO SUCCESS in celebration of our 30 years of service to America's foster youth.

Each year, 25,000 teens age out of the foster care system and many face a challenging world without family or financial support. Founded in 1981, Foster Care to Success (FCS) is the only national organization focusing solely on education, mentoring, and workforce development for teens aging out of the foster care system.
