Angels for Foster Kids offers excellent programs to help foster kids in school, age out, and recently launched A City Without Orphans. UpRoarious Applause to the founder, Margaret Iuculano who has continued to dedicate time and energy in raising awareness about foster kids.
A City without Orphans strives to provide quality foster care homes and not simply remove a child from one trouble home environment into another. Margaret says, ”We will provide extensive training to parents who are able to provide a loving family environment to a foster child, who more than anything is looking to be loved.”

Angels for Foster Kids is an amazing charity that has been servicing the Bay Area and beyond for several years. Angels provides foster children with opportunities they would not otherwise have. Opportunities such as attending sports camps, prom, and the like. Foster children are able to feel more like their peers who are not foster children. Angels not only provides necessities but also also the children to have a "wish granted."
I am a Guardian ad Litem. We are advocates for abused, neglected and abandoned children. This program has been making dreams come true for children that have given up on dreaming. Angels for Foster Kids has made it possible for children that are in foster care to attend programs that they would not have been able to if this organization would not have provided the funding. I have a teenage male, let's call him Monroe. He is a great basketball player and has an opportunity to attend a specialized camp where there will be scouts looking at him and the other boys there. Angel's for Foster Kid's is providing the funding for this young man to go. This is one of the best opportunities that he has ever had. This would not be something that he would have dreamed to be possible as foster care nor case management agencies provide funding for these once in a lifetime opportunities. Monroe is seeing the world through different eyes these days. He does believe dreams can come true and I believe that it is due to this one program saying to him "we believe in you" through providing the funding. Something that may not seem so large to adults but to this child this is his lifetime turning around for the better.
Thank you Angel's for Foster Kid's!

Fulfills wishes for foster children.
As an active Board Member of this organization I have seen the benefits from the work done and the chlldren who benefit. Granting Wishes for kids in Foster Care is a very worthy cause as many of these children just want clothing or school supplies. These children do not ask for much and just knowing that the community cares about them goes a very long way in helping to improve their life in foster care.
The founder spent time in foster care and is driven to create awareness and raise funds to improve lives of foster children in America.
In 2010, the organization granted wishes to 150 children their goal in 2011 is reach over 1000 children. With over 500,000 chilren in foster care in America they recognize the need and are dedicated to reaching out to as many children as possible.
