The Foundation for Foster Children is incredibly thankful to be Visit Orlando's Magical Dining Month charity partner. We appreciate both Visit Orlando and the numerous charitable restaurants participating in this year's Magical Dining Month. Proceeds from the event will help the Foundation for Foster Children to support the 1400 ethnically diverse foster children who reside in Central Florida's tri-county area. With new opportunities, local foster youth discover hidden talents, boost their self-esteem, improve their grades, and begin to uncover their individual potential.
The Foundation for Foster Children is an important asset to Central Florida as it strengthens our community by providing direct support to foster children and foster families in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties. Since 2008, the Foundation has provided funding and in-kind support for the unmet needs of foster youth through several programs, including supporting their immediate needs when they first enter foster care. With an emphasis on education, over half of all funding supports educational needs of foster children through in-home tutoring and other services. Through the Fostering Success grant program, "typical childhood experiences" are provided to our local foster children that otherwise would be unavailable, such as athletics, art, music, dance and other opportunities. Another important focus of the Foundation is on youth who are transitioning to adulthood, youth ages 17-23 who are provided with direct support and volunteer mentors. The Foundation for Foster Children, along with your support, assists foster children so that they can thrive. We thank you for your support!
