Aland Stamps, CEO River Jordan accepting a check for $7, 000 from the Bay City Noon Optimist Club Camel Race Committee.
The mission of River Jordan is to empower current and former foster youth to take responsibility of their own individual lives and become productive members of society. Their approach to this is by helping them build and sustain personal relationships with caring people within their circle, identify and overcome stigmas, labels, and barriers that make it difficult to transition successfully into society after foster care and to address issues early on before aging out of the foster care system.
