A Good Night’s Sleep for James S.

Good Night Sleep

We’d like to take the time to appreciate the efforts of one of our foster children, James! For the first time in three months, James is finally getting a good night’s sleep.

By the time James requested the funding for a new bed, he had already been sleeping on a deflated air mattress for 3 months.  Then he realized the mattress he found and brought home had bed bugs!

The Foundation knew we had to step in and get James the help he needed. When asked what receiving this new bed set meant to him he stated, “It helped me to get the rest I need to be ready and alert for school so that I can succeed in what I’m trying to accomplish.” 

Navigating Adulthood

For foster youth aging out of foster care, it is difficult to navigate adulthood on their own without the support of a caring adult. FFC assists older youth with financial issues such as the bed set provided to James, but we also match older foster youth with a caring adult mentor through our LIFEGUIDES program. If you are interested in financially supporting the Transition to Adulthood program or becoming a mentor, please contact us today!
