New Our Children Fund Focused on Helping Foster Care Children

The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia announces the launch of the Our Children Fund, devoted to supporting the approximately 260 children in the Fairfax County foster care system.  The Our Children Fund was established by Deborah G. Matthews, a trust and estate attorney devoted to supporting foster children. The Our Children Fund provides financial assistance for items and experiences for children in the Fairfax County foster system between the ages of birth and 17 years, and young adults between the ages of 18 and 21, if permanency (return home, relative placement, or adoption) is not achieved.  This Fund addresses their otherwise unmet medical, social, emotional and educational needs.
