Rita Soronen

There are no longer any excuses for children lingering in or aging out of foster care. Gail Johnson Vaughn, through Mission Focused Solutions, not only keenly understands that, but has leapt far outside conventional thinking by working to influence change in systems, to provide tools to break down financial barriers while driving budget reform, and to build collaborative efforts to strengthen and energize organizations. We are proud to work with her in these efforts and on behalf of the children who need our best thinking, our urgent actions and our uncompromising belief that they are worth the effort.
