$4,000 will benefit local children in foster care

Topeka, Kansas (March 31, 2023) – Recently, the Kansas Heritage Foundation, a private Topeka-
based organization that supports charitable organizations, awarded TFI Family Services a $4,000
grant to support local children in foster care and the youth of the Teens Reaching Adult Independent Living (TRAIL) program. TRAIL provides youth aged 17-22 the opportunity to learn essential life skills and practice living independently while still having the support and guidance of caring staff.

With the donation from The Kansas Heritage Foundation, TFI will be able to pay for summer school, camps, school supplies such as laptops, musical instruments, and uniforms for the youth of our community. The materials acquired with this grant will aid in the success of teens transitioning into adulthood to become productive members of their communities, as well as help local foster children with their educational needs.
