InnovAction Awards

2024 Winner Announced

The College of Law Practice Management is pleased to announce Bay Area Legal Services' entry, FosterPower, the winner of the 2024 InnovAction Award competition. FosterPower is the first website and app in the country that explains the benefits, protections, and legal rights of kids in foster care.

FosterPower was created because there was no way to find information on the benefits, protections, and legal rights for kids in foster care. When kids in foster care move, they often are given little notice and many of their belongings get lost. But the one thing kids almost always keep on them is a phone. Federal law says children must be given information on their rights in foster care. With FosterPower, this information is right at their fingertips.

Their inspiring story and $10,000 prize will be presented during the 2024 COLPM Futures Conference in Washington, DC, March 12-13. Click here to read more about the FosterPower initiative and the 2024 finalists' programs.
