A light in the darkness of the foster care system
Updated: Apr 25
Six months ago, I wrote a column about the tragic passing of Kyle Forti. I concluded that Kyle’s life would “continue to shine in all the hearts he touched.”
On Sept. 18, several people touched by Kyle’s light will hold a fundraiser for Foster Together Colorado, a charitable organization Kyle founded with his wife, Hope. Money raised at the event will help recruit, train and mentor volunteers to support foster families.
Foster Together Colorado grew out of Kyle’s grand optimism combined with Hope’s attention to detail and methodical persistence. Working as a team, the two combined to create a workable solution for a long existing need.
