The Foundation is the nation’s oldest organization that focuses on education and development for youth who have aged out of the foster care system. Jett herself was legally adopted by Hank Williams’ mother, Lillian Stone, after his death. After Lillian died, Jett was adopted and raised by another family after a series of foster care placements. Now a country singer and songwriter, Jett performs around the world and shares guardianship over her father’s estate. “I am honored to join forces with OFA in the education and mentoring of orphans and foster youth,” says Jett. “As someone who was twice adopted and a product of years in several foster homes, I believe this association is a marriage made in heaven.”
