11 years ago I learned about the plight of foster youth in Collier and Lee Counties of SW Fl. Like most I heard of foster care but really had no idea of the challenges young people in the system faced After doing some research I found out too much and could not walk away from what i learned including the social problems and the impact on our community. Realizing the fact that so many of the younth in my own backyard were falling thru the cracks I ,with the help of many concerned people began an amazing mentoring program for young women in foster care called Footsteps to the Future. Please visit the website www.footstepstothefuture.org Once you learn about this nearly forgotten population if you feel you can contribute to the success of a young person please contact us.. It Does take a Village to Raise a Child!! And you could make the difference between success and failure..
