I've been fortunate to work with the Forever Young Foundation on the Sophie's Place in Sacramento and have admired their support, consistency, follow through, and willingness to help. The team at FYF is available when needed, has the experience and expertise to plan and execute spectacular events with high profile celebrities, and relationships with a wide variety of professionals that enable their mission of enriching and healing the lives of children.

This is one incredible organization, doing such impactful work! Sutter Children's Center is so thrilled to have partnered with the Forever Young Foundation to build our brand new Sophie's Place! Seeing how FYF has found such a beautiful way to create a lasting legacy for Sophie Barton, using her love of music to bring healing to children and families in hospitals, is truly inspiring. FYF's strong support of music therapy is helping to bring awareness to this very important field, and we are so grateful.

I have enjoyed working along side of the Forever Young Foundation. Their amazing continued efforts in the communities they have served are inspiring to everyone who has had the pleasure of working with them. Their dedication to evolving and staying current with partnering charitable needs is admirable and I am excited to watch the foundation grow especially with their newest initiative Sophie's Place. Sophie's Place is life changing for so many children and a blessing to so many hurting families. I feel honored to have gotten the privilege to know those a part of the Forever Young Foundation and wish them great success in their future endeavors.

I have been able to work with the staff of Forever Young Foundation, and have been continually impressed time after time. Not only with their kindness, but how they operate Forever Young. Having spent the past 2 years actively growing a foundation with a small staff, I know what to look for within an organization. Forever Young has a strong moral compass that is obvious to those that dive into the interworking of their organization.

I am a senior director at 1736 Family Crisis Center and have had the pleasure of working hand in hand with The Forever Young Foundation for several years because they are helping us out an 8 to 80 Zone in our newest youth shelter for homeless youth. The staff at TFTF are deeply committed to helping youth. Every time we have needed their support they have instantly been there to help us create a space for another 8 to 80 Zone. Every interaction with staff has been pleasant, educational and shown their deep commitment towards helping youth.

I have worked with the Forever Young Foundation as a photographer for the past 6 months and have witnessed firsthand their incredible love and spirit for all they serve. At each event, they make sure each individual is treated with the most love and respect possible, and strive DAILY to grow the support for children in need. MAGICAL people working for a MAGICAL foundation.

The Forever Young Foundation is one of the most passionately committed organizations I have encountered. The management staff is responsive and accountable and cares deeply about maximizing donor dollars. They truly care about outcomes and how their efforts affect other's lives in a positive way. This organization deserves even more credit than they receive.

Bravo!

I cannot say enough about the Forever Young Foundation. The compassion, outreach and drive that this foundation has for making a different in the lives of the individuals they work with is breath taking. If they say they are going to do something, it happens. They have changed the lives of so many individuals and families and these changes reach far into the communities. Incredible visionaries who never seem to stop working!! Thank you for all you do.

The Forever Young Foundation is a charity that was founded in 1993 by NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback Steve Young, focused on passing on hope and resources for the development, strength, and education of children. The Foundation serves children in many parts of the world facing significant physical, emotional, and financial challenges by providing them with academic, athletic, and therapeutic opportunities currently unavailable to them. The organization is truly amazing and the work their team does is inspiring!

Steve Young's ability to connect with and inspire kids and families has been on full display since he was a player at BYU and later during his Hall of Fame NFL career. He played with a grit and determination that lifted his teams to great success and he has transferred those skills and traits to his work in the community. Now the excitement and inspiration he provides has only expanded through the great work the Forever Young Foundation has done and continues to do support children in need. The passion he has to serve children and their families is shared by his wife Barb and the entire Forever Young team and has led to impactful partnerships and innovative new programs all designed for the betterment of children. Seeing the reaction of joy children have when he and Barb visit the Forever Young Zones is incredibly uplifting. I can only imagine what kind of interaction and excitement they will generate with their new Sophie's Place music therapy initiative. With all of the challenges kids face these days, we need a lot more people like Steve and Barb Young and foundations like Forever Young to join the cause.
