MiraCosta College’s Resources and Assistance for Former Foster Youth (RAFFY) program is a powerful counseling and networking program designed to assist students who have aged out of the foster care system. The program features specialized academic advising, personal counseling, social services referrals, financial assistance, and mentoring. Every six months the RAFFY program produces graduates who have earned a certificate of achievement or associate degree or satisfied the requirements to transfer to a university. RAFFY students have transferred to CSUSM, SDSU, UCSD, USC, UCLA, and National University, to name just a few destinations.
Students who have experienced life in a foster home or group home often need extra support and resources to ensure they succeed in college. Involvement with the RAFFY program greatly increases a student's success throughout their educational journey.
