About Us

The mission of Friends of Foster Children of Southwest Florida (“FFC”) is to provide abused, neglected and abandoned children in Southwest Florida with the social, educational and financial support the state does not.

When children are removed from their homes due to abandonment, serious neglect or abuse, it is often with nothing more than the clothes they are wearing or meager belongings stuffed into garbage bags. Torn from their homes, it is not hard to imagine their confusion and fear as they are placed with strangers. FFC recognizes that these children deserve to have their childhood kept intact and provides them with opportunities to become successful and strong adults.

FFC, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, focuses on filling in the gaps in the state system. FFC’s support ranges from tutoring or after-school programs to enrichment activities that nurture the child’s talents and passions.

We give these children a chance to become successful and strong adults. For many children the programs provided by FFC will be their first chance to be truly cared for and loved.
