Philadelphia is a city rich in diversity and history. It’s also a city rich in homelessness, and a failed foster care system. The Foyer of Philadelphia is seeking to change that. Leigh Braden, a social worker with 13+ years experience, founded the Foyer of Philadelphia two years ago and she is driven.
The Foyer of Philadelphia’s mission is to provide housing, job training, education, and counseling along with other enrichment programs for LGBTQ youth who are aging out (ages 17-24) of the foster care system, or who are homeless.
