Growing Support

Jay MacIntosh ’86 kickstarted a nonprofit to help former foster kids make the transition to adulthood.

As a longtime foster child advocate Jay MacIntosh ’86 saw first-hand that kids aging out of the child welfare system weren’t getting the support they need. He decided to rally adults, corporations, and government agencies to help fill those needs through mentorships and other support for former foster kids by launching The Village. The nonprofit currently seeks to sign up 1,000 people able to help kids make the transition to adulthood in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.
