On Your Feet Foundation (OYFF) honors and values the choice birth parents have made to place their children for adoption, helps birth parents become self-sufficient, and provides support and community after placement.

In November 2018, OYFF hosted “Gather,” a fundraising event at the Evanston Art Center with New Orleans style food and drink, live music, silent and live auctions, and mingling opportunities.

This small but mighty organization finds 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.
