The mission of the Foundation for Foster Children is Enhancing the lives of children in foster care through support and advocacy to create opportunities for a brighter future.
WHY WE’RE HERE AND WHO WE ARE
In Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties, over 60 children are taken from their homes and placed in foster care each MONTH.
Of these children:
- Less than 60% will graduate from high school
- Over 20% will become homeless after age 18
- 25% will end up in the criminal justice system by age 24.
In 2008, the Foundation for Foster Children (FFC), a 501-c-3, was formed to address these staggering statistics. In collaboration with Community Based Care, a federally funded program, FFC provides an integral tier of support that goes beyond the basic needs of wellness and safety. This coordinated effort provides a comprehensive approach to addressing the outcomes from abuse and neglect.
The hallmarks of our program, educational support, personal development, and life-skills guidance target the areas essential to changing a child’s direction from poverty, crime and government assistance so that they can better become independent, contributing members of our community.
