The First Chance Foundation is a wonderful organization doing great work to support children in need and serve the community. For the past few years, the leaders of FCF have kindly reached out to our organization in meaningful ways, including care packages to mothers and babies in need, as well as monetary support of our cause. Especially as a small non-profit organization with limited resources, we have been honored by the generosity and good example of the First Chance Foundation.

The First Chance Foundation is a phenomenal organization doing great work to better the community. They are compassionate and generous in their support of children in need. Year after year the Foundation has stepped up to help the abused, abandoned and homeless kids we serve. We could not do what we do without their ongoing, dedicated support.

The time you give to the children far outweighs our efforts, but what we do is to help you make their lives and your job a little easier. :) The cohesiveness we have with organizations such as yours makes the time we put into giving and assisting all worth it! Thank you for being on the front-line.

First Chance Foundation is a crucial resource for children in need in our community. As a leader in a non-profit that First Chance Foundation helps, I can honestly say they go above and beyond to serve. If we need something for our kids (abused, abandoned and neglected youth), they find a way to get it for us. First Chance Foundation is a top notch, well run foundation that follows their Mission with integrity.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would not change a thing.

We go above and beyond to help those that are on the frontline! Our job is easy, we just want to do our best to help make your job easier...though for you and the others on the frontline, it will truly never be easy. Thank you for the kind words and may we continue to have supporters that allow us to go above and beyond.
