For the past 12 years, the R.J. Leonard Foundation has worked to help educate and mentor young adults aging out of the foster care system in Bucks and Montgomery Counties. Our annual celebration "Heart for Change" has similarly given our community and friends the opportunity to support our young people and our mission, and has been a vital part of our continuing efforts to make a difference in the lives of the young adults we mentor - our Fellows.

We know that this past year and more has been challenging on every level - personally, professionally and financially. Much like you, our Fellows have not been spared. Many have struggled through unemployment, virtual schooling for both themselves and their children, and the emotional weight of the pandemic. More than half have contracted COVID-19. We need your help now as we aim to help our Fellows work toward recovery from this global crisis. Each and every one of them has goals worth achieving. We want to give them the opportunity to do so.
