Ruby’s Foster Village (RFV) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides educational support to foster youth and those leaving the foster care system, by helping them graduate high school and continue on through college. Only 51% of foster youth graduate high school, and only 4% make it through college. One out of every five youth who age out of the foster care system lack a home when they turn 18. These kids end up living in poverty and often end up homeless because they are faced with navigating the transition to adulthood alone. We are passionately dedicated to changing the statistics through education. RFV extends a lifeline of support to these youth by providing basic needs, a pathway to graduation and college, and most importantly, hope for the future.

Our children are our most valuable resource, so let’s invest our time and dollars to change the world, one child, one youth, at a time!
