FOSTER CARE COALITION OF GREATER ST LOUIS INC
February 16, 2012

Even though I now live far away from St. Louis, I continue to support the Coalition and its mission, to find forever homes for children drifting in the foster care "system. Moving to a more accessible location and opening a resale store were both wonderful strategies to raise awareness and also money! Moving the annual Old Bags event to a new venue last year proved to be a great decision, and this spring's event is highly anticipated. Despite the terrible economy, this agency has positioned itself to move forward with hard work and wise innovations.

FOSTER CARE COALITION OF GREATER ST LOUIS INC
February 15, 2011

Extreme Recruitment SHOULD revolutionize the lives of children in foster care, agencies that oversee foster homes, and families who adopt children languishing in the system. I have been a volunteer for four years, and the impact that this organization has had on children is life-altering for them and breathtaking for those who work on the sidelines. Finding homes for living, breathing people, who, through no fault of their own, are drifting, abused, and unloved, is the greatest mission that exists, and FACC exemplifies fulfilling that mission

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Volunteering during training days with kids--foster kids, the kids of professionals who were in the sessions, and siblings. I never knew who belonged to which group. They were delightful, polite, and above all, FUN! I also spent a lot of time with the staff of the Coalition planning major fundraising events and they are literally awe-inspiring.

Ways to make it better...

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

Give them more money for Extreme Recruitment.
