Foster Kid In College Needs Help

A young man recently aged out of foster care and in his third year of college. A foster agency made representations of support they'd give me after he turned 21 that they've basically gone back on. Luckily in a few weeks other supports will be out in place for him, but that's basically for next semester. He's a great student, an outstanding and impressive young man who has had to do so much on his own. He goes to school and Buffalo. What I hope we can do is raise a good chunk of money that will allow him to stay in school until he can stand on his own when more financial aid, scholarships plus his current employment will sustain him in semesters to come. This is a young person who's had very few breaks in his life. He was in foster care since he was 8. Just the fact that he's in college an on track to graduate with a Social Work degree is a testament to his spirit. Any amount you can give would be amazing.
