Mission Statement

The 1999 Collective is a community of foster care alumni and allies. We work to ensure that Utahns who experienced foster care after age 13 are given resources, connected and supported through early adulthood and beyond. We contribute lived expertise to Utah's foster care community.


1999 Collective is named after the Foster Care Independence Act of 1999, which created supports for youth aging out of foster care. We hope to increase access to these supports and others, and build collectively upon the foundation established by this legislation .

We aim to maintain an organizational structure where power and decision-making is foremost held by those with lived experience in foster care, but not place the burden of work solely on those with lived experience. We encourage allies and partners to join together to collectively improve the well-being of our foster care alumni community.
