In May 2019, On Your Feet Foundation (OYFF) hosted “Gather,” a fundraising event at Colvin House, a unique and historic mansion along Sheridan Road in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood. The evening included delicious bites, live music, a silent auction and pledge appeal, mingling opportunities, and a stylized Burlesque performance by Eva la Feva.

OYFF honors and values the choice birth parents make to place their children for adoption, provides support and connects clients with mental health resources and safe, stable housing.  OYFF also hosts supportive retreats several times a year, and provides educational scholarships to meet the needs of birthparents they serve and help them on a path to success.
