It costs more than $500 to equip a dorm room with the basics.

You can help by sponsoring a student.

STUDENTS ARE STARTING COLLEGE ALONE

This year, over 2000 former foster youth will be embarking upon their college journey alone.

These amazing students have overcome tremendous obstacles to get to college (only 10% of foster youth go to college and only 3% will graduate). Despite making it to this milestone moment, most of these young people won’t have anyone there to mark the occasion or help them move into their dorm rooms with the essentials they need.

IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY – YOU CAN HELP. 

This year when you make a Project Dorm Room Donation, you can help 200 students set up their dorm rooms at colleges across California.
