Review for Foster Care Coalition of Greater St Louis Inc, Saint Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been on the the FACC Jr. Board for 1.5 years. I am the 2011 Jr. Board President. I can personally attest for the good this organization does for the St. Louis community by helping those children who are unlikely to be adopted through the traditional channels. The FACC has been acknolwedged in the NY Times and most recently Time Magazine for its groundbreaking method of finding homes for foster children. The campaign is called extreme recruitment. It has been widely successful and is only in its infancy. The employees and volunteers for The Coalition are beyond impressive in how much dedication they show towards the children and foster parents in St. Louis. I am very proud to be so involved with the FACC.

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

multiple fundraisers and training events for foster parents. We have taken on such projects as building a wheelchair ramp so a disabled foster child could stay in his foster home. The long days work ended with a blind daughter seeing "did you ever know you're my hero". It made me speechless.

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

At this time I do not have specific changes to recommend.

Role:  Board Member & I've participated in many volunteer activities directly with foster children as well as helped raise funds for The Coalition.
