As a board member, I get the opportunity to see the direct impact our community, friends, family and businesses are able to make in the lives of hundreds of children each year. However, the impact of their support, through First Chance, doesn't just effect the kids...it sometimes effects the adults involved as well. This is a top-notch group - the board, the volunteers, the supporters, the advisors - and together we truly are making a difference in the lives of children.
First Chance Foundation is not only an organization that supports other non-profits, it is one that provides abandoned, abused and neglected children with moments in time to create great memories! We do help supply their basic needs, but it is the times when volunteers reach out to be mentors, or when we grant wishes from the children's wish lists that make a difference. Those are the times that are the most valuable and most important to First Chance as an organization.
