Art Project at the Museum!
What a wonderful day we had at the Boca Raton Museum Art School with some of our girls. We learned about poured art and how anyone can create a masterpiece! We very much appreciate Walter O’Neill and Peg Anderson from the Museum for providing us with the space we needed, Roxene Sloate for being an amazing art teacher, Sherry Morganstein for arranging the project and Anita Detert for being the best assistant. We also have to mention that the snacks from our volunteers were a huge hit. We all had a great time from creating smocks out of garbage bags to making beautiful paintings and memories to keep forever! Click to see pictures!

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.
