SACRAMENTO, CA – May 07, 2018 – As National Foster Care Month kicks-off, the Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC), National Homebuyers Fund, Inc. (NHF), and iFoster have initiated the distribution of more than 1,100 laptop computers to all eligible foster youth and former foster youth aged 16-21 within RCRC’s 35-member counties.

Late last year, RCRC and NHF’s Boards of Directors approved providing $200,000 each to support the 1 Laptop Program for Foster Youth. Through this $400,000 total contribution, eligible foster youth and former foster youth in care within RCRC’s 35 counties will be provided a laptop, complete with the iFoster Transitional Age Youth (TAY) Assistant, which includes a HIPAA compliant secure online digital locker, accessible anywhere, anytime. The laptop is fully integrated into iFoster’s resource portal and programs, providing access to more than 500 needed resources and improved youth support networks.
