As a newbie to San Francisco, I wanted to get re-involved in the non-profit world and feel like I was making a difference. Upon reading about the Friends of SFILSP, I was instantly amazed at the large impact a smaller organization was making in foster children's lives. I was lucky enough to be granted the honor of serving on the board and it's great to see the passion in everyone's faces as they look for new and innovative ways to help kids achieve their dreams. Such a fantastic organization with a beautiful mission deserves this recognition.

When I was looking for a non-profit organization to get involved with, I knew I wanted one that had a clear mission to help youth in need, a committed team, and a proven track record of maximizing the use of every dollar donated. I could not be more pleased with my discovery of Friends of San Francisco Independent Living Skills Program ("Friends"). Driven by an all-volunteer board, Friends provides emancipating youth with grants and scholarships that help the youth stay in school and pursue their dreams. I had a chance at a recent event to meet some of the youth that this organization serves and hear many of their stories - so much determination to reach their goals even amidst devastating challenges. The founders of Friends are phenomenal and have poured more than just time and money into this organization - they pour their heart and soul. Like the youth that Friends supports, they are an inspiration! I am proud to be involved with Friends, and believe them to be very deserving of a top-rating. Easiest review I've ever given.
