The Foster Achieving Fellowship met for its inaugural banquet yesterday.

The group's goal is to help foster children never adopted get a higher education.

Many of the kids are transitioning to young adulthood and can no longer go under foster care.

The program also provides academic and social support.

"We monitor their academics, we keep their incentives in place to encourage them to keep going," said program coordinator Becky Pengelley. "A lot of things come up in their lives and we are just here to keep them on track and stay motivated."

Pangelly also says the FAF hopes to continue being the family, foster children never had.
