Voices of Foster Care is a 3-year mass-comm and live event education and production plan. We have partnered with The Oakland Film Company to bring our entertaining and informative content to fruition in back-to-back releases of art, books, soundtracks, films, and fashion for fundraising.
Our programs keep young people gainfully employed in entertainment-related work training when they are at the most pivotal and vulnerable point in their lives, from age 18 to 30 years old. We offer safe spaces and opportunities for music, speaking, business, and personal growth.

The Hampton Soul Festival Workshop is an outstanding music initiative that offers an immersive eight-week course in music skills development and professional, industry-standard live stage production to recent college graduates, college students, and young adults who have aged out of the foster care system. At the end of the workshop, the students co-create the Hampton Soul Fest, a live instrument-based showcase at the new East Hampton Community Park in front of a live audience of Hampton residents and supporters from all over Henry County. Learn more at HamptonSoulFest.com.
The Hampton Soul Festival Workshop and Hampton Soul Fest are led by grass-roots community efforts that include collaboration with visual and performing, and members of The Hampton, Mayor Tarpley’s Office, Mainstreet, Merchants, and Community Members. Hampton Soul Fest is arguably our first film project, though it is b-roll material intended to be used in the first Voices of Foster Care documentary film series, Where the Rainbow Hides: A Homestead Act. This footage is part of our development process and features interviews, rehearsals, live stage production, performance, and public speaking clips of our Young Adult Management Team as they prepare to become leaders for Student Participants of the Voices of Foster Care initiative.
