For what, and whom, are we advocating?
Education for Foster children
Foster children, the children most vulnerable in our communities, are at a high risk of entering the “School to Prison Pipeline.” An alarming 30% of foster youth will enter the juvenile justice system each year due to behavior in and out of school. These children experience childhood trauma that stacks the odds greatly against them in traditional learning environments. It is our entire mission to see these children get the support and education they need to live a loving and meaningful life.

A quick start
Advocacy31Nine has been busy working with educational systems and families in the Phoenix area, affecting over 100 families by helping navigate educational rights for their foster children.
Not only have we assisted these families with various resources and information helping their cases, but we have also unlocked over $3 million (USD) to help pay for support in schools (an average of $30,000/student).
