Our ribbon cutting event was a huge success and we appreciate all the community support. Over 100 people came out, along with the Mayor and Deputy Mayor, to help us celebrate our new “home”. We are going to accomplish great things from our new headquarters. THANK YOU for all your good wishes! Click here to see all the pictures!
Debbie Sandberg is one of our awesome volunteers! She is committed to helping children in foster care be the best they can be, and she chooses to give her time and energy, and beautiful smiles, to BFF. We are so grateful to have her as a part of our team. Thank you Debbie!

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 high school and beyond. Best Foot Forward is committed to building promising futures for foster care youth and helping each student reach their full potential.
