Fostering Hope wins $50,000 Encore.org Judges’ Prize to support expansion
On Nov. 14, Fostering Hope was awarded the prestigious Judges’ Prize by Encore.org, a group devoted to inter-generational initiatives that improve communities. This grant was given to help the organization begin the work of designing a plan to distribute what we’ve learned to other communities, which may be interested in replicating the work we do with foster families. In a fun twist, a cartoonist from the New Yorker in attendance at the prize ceremony captured the moment that Brian Newsome, Development Director, and Angela Carron, Executive Director, received the prize.
