The Blue Babies of Park West Foundation are youth who are, or were, in the child welfare system and who are committed to improving themselves and other youth who are in care. Most attend college and others are working towards a college education or trade skill.
The youth work as a family to support, educate, and encourage growth in each other and their community. The Blue Babies and their mentors are dedicated to improving their own lives and the lives of other children who are in or have left the child welfare system through caring and innovative initiatives that seek to empower youth to take charge of their lives. Park West Foundation is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2005 by Albert and Mitsie Scaglione to support creative and lasting solutions for youth aging out of Foster Care.
Fostering Success Michigan is a program of The New Foster Care that aims to increase access and success in higher education and post-college careers for youth with experience in foster care.
