Mission: Fostering Imagination was founded in 2005 to address the unmet needs of this special needs population. Each year as a community, we parent 500,000 abused and neglected children in America's foster care systems. These youth lack exposure to stimulating childhood activities that our own children often take for granted. Fostering Imagination's fundamental mission is to foster support, and nurture imagination, creation and talent by providing opportunities and encouragement to foster youth through enrichment programs that include, a Theatre, Filmmaking, Adventure and Mentoring. These programs are greatly needed by foster children because they currently have limited access to programs in which they can participate. By providing foster children access to extracurricular activities we are giving them the opportunity to realize their full potential in a place that will provide them with stability and support in their troubled lives.
Fostering Imagination goes beyond what most Mentor organizations provide. They truly create a connection with each Mentee as to create a family unit dynamic. Children in the foster care system need commitment, stability and consistency in order to work through their losses. Fostering Imagination strives towards this dedication. Actions speak louder than words ...They provide are a home where children can be received with love and care unconditionally and seek them out when they are "shipwrecked." I am honored to be on their Advisory Board and eager to help this organization succeed towards it's greatest potential... by making this world a place of safety and refuge for children.
