The Glass Slipper has legally changed its name to the THE FOUNDATION to better reflect the depth of our work, however, our website is in the rebranding process.

The Foundation: Empowering Youth. Building Futures.

We are a Sacramento based non-profit organization, formerly known as The Glass Slipper since 1997.  We provide mentoring support and holistic programs for youth, with priority given to those who have experienced foster-care. We have seen the profound effect of relational support firsthand, therefore mentoring remains at the core of our mission facilitated by trauma-informed mentors and coaches within our supportive community network of women. Through this collective effort, we aim to inspire, empower, and equip young women and girls for lifelong success. 

Our holistic approach spans from first grade through college, encompassing group mentoring and service learning. Our programs encourage entrepreneurship as well as work & life skills training through hands-on opportunities, including customer service through a retail boutique, and an introduction to the hospitality industry through our on-site professional kitchen.


To inspire, empower and equip young women and girls for life through a supportive mentoring network.


The Organization remains fully volunteer operated; therefore, all contributions directly benefit program participants. Additionally, we are currently seeking support to rebuild our website.

Equity Statement

We are committed to fostering an inclusive and equitable environment where all young women and girls, regardless of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, ability, or sexual orientation, have equal access to opportunities for growth, empowerment, and success. We strive to dismantle systemic barriers, promote diversity and representation, and amplify the voices of marginalized individuals. Through our programs, initiatives, and advocacy efforts, we work towards achieving equity and justice for all.
