Rapid Response is a safety net program for college students with foster care experience that quickly addresses the challenges threatening a youth's ability to transition to and through college in pursuit of a career.

Our purpose is to eliminate barriers that hinder current and former foster youth from continuing with their post-secondary education. Alongside our network of supporters, we are dedicated to changing the legacy of college foster care students through empowerment, personal and professional development, and events-based fundraising.
