True North, Inc was established to meet a need in the Foster Care system to house the numerous children who are without placement. We are also tackling the educational piece of getting them back on track academically.

We fill the void when that is not an option.

We will dive into our formula for helping the foster kids graduate. Currently only 27% in Western Kansas do. We have an exciting program called "Another Living Thing" in which we are helping kids to "get out of their own head", and start being responsible for a pet, a plant, an aquarium, a community garden, etc.
