Project Dorm Room 2023 in full swing!

This year, Project Dorm Room (PDR) will equip 250 college-going foster youth at 15 campuses will all the supplies they need to set up their dorm rooms. Many foster youth headed to college don’t have family to cheer them on. Many arrive on campus empty handed or with their few belonging in a trash bag.

Your support helps them to feel confident and ready to succeed in their new environment. Success starts at day one, and with PDR former foster youth start their academic career on the right food. Deborah, an RTS Scholar who graduated this year from UCLA recently shared her experience with PDR. ”

“When I went to pick up the supplies an older student who was also in the Bruin Guardian Scholars helped me move into my room. It was like the feeling of love and support that you would get from a family, and it meant so much to me as I was just starting college.”  Deborah got everything she needed to set up her dorm room, start classes confidently and was connected to a supportive community.

Last week, PDR started strong with move-in day at Cal State University Long Beach and Cal State University LA.
