What is True Up?
True Up is a groundbreaking initiative to empower young people in foster care to gain the critical life skills they need to make a successful transition from a structured environment to self-sufficiency in our communities.
True Up, which was founded in 2011, is a landmark partnership among foster care agencies that serve as surrogate parents for hundreds of children and teens in Kentucky.
They are committed to help youth transition from agency care to independent living.
True Up is a caring family of foster care alumni who have faced the challenges of getting jobs, continuing their education, and overcoming the barriers of mental health management. They have succeeded and are giving back.
