About Us

We exist to put the wheels in motion.

At Spoke 18, we are on a mission forward. We’re redefining the way foster children create connections and develop relationships to better empower them to live the life they want to live. From creative outings and outlets to strategic partnerships with senior living facilities, we’re building a new model of care that is centered around growth for children and those entering adulthood.

Why Spoke 18?

Because we believe everyone deserves a path forward. Turning 18 shouldn’t mean losing the resources you’ve been offered in the past, it should mean gaining access to the mentorship you need to further your independence and better your future. That’s why we’re here – to ensure every spoke is added to the lives of foster children.
