About The Kierrah Foundation:
The Kierrah Foundation was established to help young women who have been adversely affected by being placed in the foster care system. The unique needs of these young women are underrepresented and underserved. The Kierrah Foundation is set up to be a multilevel support system for these young women who often are estranged from adult family members and must navigate the path to adulthood alone. The Foundation seeks to build their self-esteem and to squash the rampant self-doubt that makes these young women feel hopeless, disenfranchised and on the path to nowhere. The Foundation also offers women a unique opportunity to share valuable life experiences with upwardly mobile individuals who can encourage them to face the challenges ahead.
