Rosie Williams was one of UpFront’s original Group Leaders. Rosie entered foster care at 8 months-old, and spent the next 20 years placed in more than 30 foster care placements, including foster homes, group homes, residential treatment centers and hospitals. Rosie currently works with CASA – NYC as a youth advocate and speaker. She formerly worked with You Gotta Believe’s Nobody Ages-out Youth Movement. Rosie does not want foster youth to suffer the same losses she experienced while she was in foster care.
