We hope to see you at our biggest event of the year, the BFF Blooming BASH! Join us for scrumptious food & drinks, silent & live auctions, and entertainment at the Polo Club of Boca Raton. Watch for more information coming soon!
Happy anniversary to us! We are 7! That’s 7 years of changing lives. 7 years of breaking the cycle of abuse. 7 years of empowering children to be the best they can be. 7 years of advocating for those who cannot advocate for themselves. 7 years of working hand in hand with agencies throughout Palm Beach County. 7 years of community support, which allows us to continue our work and spread our mission. THANK YOU to everyone who played a part in the journey. Please stay with us and watch the amazing things we can do together in the next 7 years!
Grades are Great!
We could not be prouder of our student’s achievements. It makes us even happier when we see that they are leaning to be proud of themselves! When a child makes the ‘on a roll’ (otherwise known as honor roll) for the first time in their life, you can be sure that child is headed in the right direction.
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.
