Giving Foster Youth the “Courage to Dream”

Helping Foster Kids to Dream

Eveline is a former foster youth who worked with the Foundation for Foster Children.  Now in her 20’s, she has a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work and is working towards her dream job! Congrats for having the courage to dream, Eveline!


Eveline and our Program and Volunteer Manager, Lauren, went to speak last weekend at a small group home in Ocoee. While there, Lauren spoke about the services available to the young ladies who reside in the group home and Eveline shared her personal story about the time she spent in foster care. She told the girls to have the “courage to dream” and that they can be anything they want to be.

Children in foster care often don’t know all of the resources available to them in the community. Without encouragement or leadership, they might not even know where to look for help. By becoming involved in local group homes and speaking to youth directly, the Foundation for Foster Children hopes to help children connect with the tools they need.

FFC makes it possible for children in foster care to access educational support and enrichment opportunities that give hope for a brighter future. For ways that you can help, please check out our “Get Involved” page.
