For many years, ChildPromise Inc. has been supporting and encouraging current and former foster children to pursue higher education or a trade. Today, with the support of donors, volunteers, and community partners, ChildPromise, Inc. is making a difference by raising funds for higher education scholarships and credentialing opportunities for foster youth.

"Our organization is committed to empowering foster children through education and resources not otherwise available to them," said Dr. Nathaniel J. Williams, President and Chief Executive Officer of ChildPromise, Inc. "We are proud that our annual gala raises funds and awareness in support of our mission."

ChildPromise 2nd Annual Gala tickets are $100 each, $175 for a couple.  For more information, visit http://www.childpromise.org/2018gala

The mission of ChildPromise, Inc. is to change the current statistic that only 1% of children in the foster care system will go onto higher education/credentialization to match the overall 30% of higher education achievement for all Americans.
