Against all odds.
Isolated. Uncertain. Out of control. This is the everyday reality for thousands of kids and teens in the foster care system across the country. Without the stability of a home and family, having the right support and resources can be the difference in walking two very different paths in life. Youth Villages provides this support and services to more than 25,000 young people every year. With an upcoming fundraiser, Youth Villages partnered with Watson Creative to produce a video telling the story of Donovan Ford, an Olympic weightlifter who grew up in foster care and found family in an unlikely place.
Tons of heart
No kid can carry the weight alone.
Even the strongest
“Wow! The video gets me every time! Thank you for capturing Donovan’s story and all the of the passion and heartfelt energy you put into this project. We really appreciate your leadership and your willingness to advocate for our mission with your company, partners, and co-workers.”
