This past Sunday, guests at FCNI’s Benefit for Kids event, were given the profound experience of hearing Raquel’s amazing journey from foster youth to college graduate. Raquel’s story is one of amazing strength and resiliency, and we hope you too will be inspired by her words.

When I started the Family Care Network in 1987, there was certainly a different approach and philosophy driving the foster care system; now, looking back, it seems like the Stone Age. The system has come a long way, but it has been a tough, hard row to hoe.
I am a former foster youth who benefited from some of the great programs that the Family Care Network offers. After serving three and half years in the military, I am now working with FCNI, assisting youth who are working towards their life goals.
