Tracy L. Fried
Most importantly, TLFA is able to help design and implement customized program approaches that recognize institutional conditions as well as student needs
Ms. Fried’s leadership in improving education outcomes for our foster care students has been recognized by national, state, and local leaders
Thank you so much for all the wisdom and advice you offered to all of us at the White House task force for disadvantaged youth.
Ms. Fried has a way of engaging individuals and demonstrating that their input is vital
All too often we become distracted by the multiple demands of our jobs and lose sight of the true focus of our work, the youth. It is apparent that your focus is clear, and your capacity for caring extends far beyond your job description.
Ms. Fried was consistently an active advocate for foster youth. She was action focused and enthusiastic about her work. She ensured that as many resources as possible were marshaled to serve the needs of our foster youth population in San Diego County
Ms. Fried helped our foster parents understand their rights and educated them about how they can advocate for their foster children within the school system. She taught us how to access resources and services
You exemplify the spirit of services that is central to the success of our youth and the public school system. I commend you for your dedication to the development of our children who reside in foster care.
TLFA has a deep understanding of how child welfare, post-secondary education, and community agencies can work together to significantly improve college access and success for students.
Ms. Fried has illuminated the minds of those who worked with her and has often been called on to convene both large and small events; speak as a keynote to instill hope and motivation; and provide national, state, and local training across all disciplines serving wards and dependents of the court.
