National Angels Outcome Evaluation Report
At its core, National Angels works toward supporting foster families by establish wellbeing and resilience for children and caregivers. The Love Box Program provides a sense of community and support for foster and kinship caregivers through intentional giving, relationship building, and mentorship. The Dare to Dream Program matches volunteers with youth in foster care to help guide them on their journey towards self-sufficiency and successful independence.
