Alabama Reach in Action


We hope you've heard about Alabama Reach and the positive impact it is making on foster youths lives.  Alabama Reach helps foster youth who may never have attended college have an opportunity to go.

On Friday, June 28th Alabama Reach, University of Alabama staff, and foster youth attended Alabama Reach's graduation ceremony.

Brianna Burton, one the 40 Alabama Reach participants at the ceremony, has been in foster care her entire life.  She has triumphed several obstacles to be apart of Alabama Reach and will pursue a college education.

Most of the time when students grow up in foster care their housing and food needs are provided, however intellectual needs may be forgotten.  This is how Alabama Reach has been effective in students lives and will continue to be in the future.
