KempeBack to School Drive

Join The Kempe Foundation this summer as we collect school supplies so children can enjoy a start to school with new supplies and backpacks. You can be part of this effort to support children and families as they prepare to get back to school this summer.

Who will receive the items?

Fostering Healthy Futures (FHF) is an evidence-based mentoring and skills training program for youth with child welfare involvement or who are at risk for child welfare involvement. There are two programs under the FHF umbrella: FHF for Preteens and FHF for Teens. Both employ a positive youth development approach to reduce trauma-related behaviors and promote healthy development.
