Women United Volunteer Activity

Lifting Up Our Foster Youth!

During the coronavirus pandemic caring for children in foster care can be even more challenging than the usual day-to-day care given by parents, foster and kinship caregivers, and child welfare professionals. Many of these children have experienced adversity and trauma, leaving them more vulnerable to the changes that come with school closings, lack of daily contact with friends and mentors, and other forms of social distancing.

United Way's Women United makes a meaningful difference in our community. Women United members are key investors in United Way's foster youth work, which focuses on supporting foster teens throughout the Sacramento community.


These youth need to hear from us now more than ever! Please pick a card design below and write some encouraging words to our local foster youth during this difficult time. Talk in a way your child can understand.

You can submit as many messages as you'd like (no duplicates please).
