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.
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
Clearly the staff working in our county valued from the groundbreaking work that you have already done and benefited from the personal examples you so generously shared with them.
Tracy Fried is an excellent and knowledgeable speaker who provided our agency with valuable information that neither the social workers nor foster parents had received up until this point.
Ms. Fried has worked with universities and community colleges to develop a program of outreach and support services that increases awareness and opportunities for foster youth to access post-secondary education. College is now an attainable goal for many foster youth.
Ms. Fried’s work has significantly reduced the long-standing educational roadblocks that plagued foster youth and ultimately affected their transition to adulthood.
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 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.
Ms. Fried’s leadership in improving education outcomes for our foster care students has been recognized by national, state, and local leaders
Ms. Fried is someone who not only talks the talk, but she also walks the walk. That is, she has great ideas, as many of us do, but she follows up on them with the persistence and energy that is rare among public-sector professionals
