Voices Benefit Concert

Thank you!

Voices: Stars for Foster Kids raises over $500,000 for You Gotta Believe!

On Monday, September 18, 2023, Voices: Stars for Foster Kids brought together the brightest and most generous stars to shine a light on the urgent need for permanent families for foster youth.

Together, we raised more than $500,00 which we immediately put to work connecting foster youth to loving, forever families.

It’s Never Too Late to Support YGB!

Help ensure every kid in foster care is connected to a loving, permanent family.

A special thank you to our sponsors and the more than 1,000 attendees who came together to raise awareness and critical funds for older youth in foster care.

SiriusXM host Seth Rudetsky and his husband, Producers James Wesley, served as our Voices hosts for the evening. Together with YGB, Seth and James created Voices in 2015, and the 2023 show represented our Ninth Edition!

Since then, as partners, we have raised over $3.8 million to help find loving families for older youth in foster care. We cannot wait for the next one!

“When we became part of the YGB family, we could not believe the amount of support we continuously received to help and support us. There is no problem too big or too small. Everything we learned in our parent training was instrumental in making our family blend.”
