THE BATTLE is ON!
We are so excited to be moving into a bigger office space to accommodate our growing staff. Thanks to all the amazing support we have received throughout the year, and the tremendous success of our students, we are expanding and need a bigger office. We are staying in the same building, just moving a few doors down . Each of our programs will have its own area: elementary, high school and college. We can’t wait to move-in and hope you will come take a tour and check it out.
Every summer we participate in the Boca Chamber of Commerce’s Festival Days, the pairing of a non-profit agency with a for-profit company to promote community activism and awareness.
Our Battle of the Bartenders is always a fun and exciting event!
SAVE THE DATE: Friday, August 12th from 5:30-7:30.
We Need Volunteers!
We are so excited to have such beautiful hand painted ceiling tiles in our new office. We appreciate all the artists and helpers who participated in the project and helped to make our office reflective of our programs and mission. We hope you will stop by to see our new office! Take a look at pictures from the day!
AWARDS & AFFILIATIONS
The BEST FOOT FORWARD FOUNDATION is the only nonprofit organization in Palm Beach County dedicated to the educational success of youth who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned and have entered the foster care system. By empowering children in foster care, Best Foot Forward helps avoid the all-too-common negative outcomes many experience. Those include:
• 54% drop out of high school
• 97% drop out of college
• 40% of 18- to 22-year-olds have been homeless and/or “couch surfed.”
• 40% have been arrested and 30% have been in jail or detention
Our programs support, guide and empower foster care youth, giving them every opportunity to succeed in school and beyond. Best Foot Forward is committed to building promising futures for foster care youth and helping each student reach their full potential.
