Building a better future for individual foster youth and Oregon’s foster care system.
Oregon Foster Youth Connection (OFYC) empowers current and former foster youth to share their voice and to be heard in key decisions affecting children and youth in foster care. With peer support, leadership skills, and civic engagement, these inspiring youth take the lead in improving their own lives and the lives of thousands of kids in Oregon’s foster care system.
MISSION & VISION
To improve the foster care system through advocacy, activism, and leadership. To ensure that all children and youth in the foster care system, from the youngest to those aging-out, are well cared for and empowered to succeed.
