Carolyn's Kids was developed in 2015 to honor my late mother, Carolyn Hooper. At the age of fourteen, I lost my mother to breast cancer. Being the eldest of seven children, I then became familiar with the Foster Care system. Throughout the last several decades, there have been immense improvements in the Foster Care system; however, there is more work to be done. Through passion and personal experience, Caroyln's Kids is an organization to support Foster Youth.
