Friends of Foster Children of Palm Beach County, Inc

Transforming the lives of foster children.

Palm Beach County, often viewed as affluent, is riddled with social issues such as childhood abuse and neglect. Children are being removed from their homes, due to no fault of their own, in record numbers. To date, there are over 1,600 children in Foster Care in our community. Perhaps even more astounding is that 45% of the children in care are under the age of 5 and 78% are under the age of 13.

Friends of Foster Children of Palm Beach County is a local nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform the lives of children in foster care in Palm Beach County. The agency, a result of a mutual merger of two long time Palm Beach County agencies (The Foster and Adoptive Parents Association and Friends of Abused Children) created the vision to nurture the lives of foster children in Palm Beach County and transform their lives through services, support and education in order to overcome the effects of child abuse and neglect, so they can experience a healthy, happy childhood and become productive members of society.

Friends of Foster Children provides six comprehensive programs to children that are adjudicated and their caregivers including foster parents, adoptive parents, relative caregivers and non-relative caregivers. Services include advocacy, navigation, therapeutic tutoring and education, support services and tangible goods such as emergency bags for children entering the dependency system, gently used clothing, and equipment.

Friends of Foster Children of Palm Beach County has one goal: To assist today’s Foster Children
become Tomorrow’s Leaders.

Friends of Foster Children of Palm Beach County serves adjudicated children and their caregivers throughout Palm Beach County. Currently seven comprehensive programs are offered by Friends of Foster Children. Each program has been created and developed us

The mission of Friends of Foster Children is to nurture the lives of foster children in Palm Beach County and transform their lives through services, support and education in order to overcome the effects of child abuse and neglect, so they can experience
