Enjoy this informative interview with Joseph Toles the Founder and Director of the Joseph Toles Foundation. Mr. Toles spent his entire childhood in foster care. He has a powerful story of success to tell and this interview is well worth listening to just for his inspiring story. However, in addition, Mr. Toles has started a summer camp for youth who are, or were, in foster care and who are now between the ages of 12 and 18 — a summer camp population that is completely underserved. He’ll be sharing the story about why he had started the camp and perhaps give you the inspiration to have a child you know go to Camp Resilience next summer.
