15 foster youth were honored earlier this month at the 18th Annual Awards for Youth in Foster Care, hosted by The College Board in New York City. First Lady of New York City Chirlane McCray congratulated the winners by video to open the ceremony.


The Foundling’s Stacy Rogers, who nominated Grand Prize winner Paris Boyd, said of the awards, “Few professionals in the child protection field are privileged enough to see their work bear fruit and to see their clients recognized for their perseverance in the face of daunting challenges.  I feel honored that I was able to have that privilege.”
