OUTINGS & OPPORTUNITIES
Sailing with Captain Zorah Rose
Captain Zorah Rose of Creative Concierge is offering free, socially distanced sailing adventures in San Francisco Bay for Marin’s foster children and their care providers. She is able to schedule one free trip per month for up to 4 people (this will go up to 6 when Covid rules are further relaxed). Visit her website (link below), identify yourself as a Marin Resource Family, and Captain Zorah will get in touch.
PLEASE NOTE: Your foster youth NEEDS to be included on the trip.
Summer Camp Scholarships
MFCA has researched summer camp scholarships in the hope that we can provide additional resources for foster families and their foster children. We are happy to say that several camps responded positively and want to work with us.
Summer Adventure Menu
Each resource family currently fostering a Marin child, or fostering an out-of-county child, will be reimbursed $300 per foster child for a Summer Adventure or two (choose from our list or one of your own!). We’re using rough math – a little over, a little under – to ensure fun for all! We’ll reimburse upon receipt.
Famous Footwear Prioritizing Hiring of Foster Youth
Ticket to Dream is excited to announce that their corporate partner Famous Footwear is now prioritizing the hiring of current and former foster youth. This includes foster, kinship care, adopted, and aged out youth. Youth must be at least 16 years of age and can apply at jobs.famous.com. When applying they should select Foster Care Community from the drop down which will ensure their application is reviewed and considered. This is not guaranteed employment.
