Our mission is to guide and financially support young adults who come from a background of abuse, neglect and time spent in foster are so that they become empowered and positive contributors to our community. We are also a marketing agency providing advertising and promotions to local business owners who are invested in integrating purpose into their bottom line.
We provide a myriad of programs enabling young adults to achieve self-sufficiency through scholarships, life skills training, partnerships with local organizations and more. We also operate Polaris House, a living program for youth who are in transition and are working and/or taking classes. This housing opportunity plays a critical role when recognizing that the majority of youth who age out of foster care will experience homelessness at least one time. Polaris House has supported over 165 at risk teens since its inception in 2003. To learn more, please link here.
REALITIES FOR CHILDREN IS WHERE BUSINESS, COMMUNITY AND SERVICE COME TOGETHER
Our vision is that every youth from Boulder County with a history in foster care has access to assistance from RFC and every community member knows of RFC and chooses to support our business members when purchasing local goods and services. Our work serves to educate, engage and inspire local businesses, youth agencies and the community at large to support and build brighter futures for Boulder County youth.
