The Foster Care Crisis
There are over 430,000 children in foster care and only 214,421 licensed foster parents. This means foster parents and agencies are often left with limited resources. Together We Rise began as a sports camp offering after-school enrichment to foster youth who otherwise could not afford the activity. As the charity grew, we've tackled larger problems including access to higher education, emergency resources, and more.
When we look at the future of foster care, Together We Rise will continue to make adjustments to address the most urgent needs facing foster youth.

No Trash Bags For Kids
In Foster Care
When foster children move from home to home, they are usually given two trash bags to carry their belongings in. At Together We Rise, we know these children deserve better than that. To help foster kids have more positive experiences, we have volunteers like you decorate, stuff, and donate Sweet Cases all over the United States.
Our Sweet Cases are blue duffle bags stuffed with a teddy bear, a blanket, a hygiene kit, a coloring book, and crayons. Participants can purchase our Sweet Cases to be donated, which directly supports the children in foster care in their areas. Together We Rise wants children in foster care to feel like kids, not trash.Want to Get Involved? Learn More >
