The nsoro Foundation, a Midtown-based nonprofit that provides college scholarships for students who have aged out of the state’s foster care system, recently was named Foundation of the Year at the ninth annual RICE (Rising In Community Excellence) Awards at Atlanta City Hall downtown. Hosted by Carter Unlimited LLC, the honors celebrate “luminaries and trailblazing organizations whose work has created substantial impact and improved outcomes within the population they serve in Georgia and beyond,” according to an awards summary. “We are so honored and humbled by this award and are literally elated at the opportunity to shed a spotlight on our mission and the remarkable youth we serve,” said Monica Pantoja, the foundation’s executive director.
