Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Children & Youth Services

Mission: At Selfless Love Foundation, our mission is to transform the lives the lives of current and former foster youth through awareness and strategic partnerships. We believe all children deserve a family, whether that is by being adopted or by being there as extended family for youth that age out – we believe family is everything. We believe in collective impact. Collective Impact is a means by which people come together in a structured way to achieve social change. Selfless Love Foundation is the thought leader for adoptions and transitioning youth in the state of Florida in driving changes to policy, practice, and process to reduce barriers to foster care adoption. This is what allows the work we do to transform generations to come in a positive way. We are focused on impact. We work in three key areas to transform the lives of current and former foster youth though awareness and strategic partnerships: adoption, independent living, and advocacy.

Results: Selfless Love Foundation’s innovative approach to adoption, awareness campaigns, and working with agencies across the state of Florida has resulted in over 380+ children connected with families and over 140+ adoptions in less than two years. Selfless Love Foundation’s collaboration with child welfare leaders, training, resources, and advocacy is impacting the outcomes of over 1,000 youth who exit the foster care system in Florida each year.

Geographic areas served: Current and former foster youth across the state of Florida

Programs: We believe each of us has a role in enhancing the lives of children and youth in foster care and encourage individuals to learn about adoption and foster care, celebrate the families who have grown through adoption and to recognize the many children who are still waiting for forever families. We are focused on improving foster care adoption in these three key areas: family support, adoption advocacy, and case worker efficiency. We are dedicated to supporting foster youth alumni through different stages of independence through collaboration with child welfare leaders, and various trainings and resources. We advocate for policy changes and processes needed to reduce barriers to foster care adoption.

My husband and I were introduced to the Selfless Love Foundation in 2018 by a close family friend. We realized very quickly that Florida’s foster care system required much needed changes. These children needed activism and a voice! Selfless Love Foundation is that voice and the fruits of our donation are evident in the Incredible work they do and the lives they have changed! I have had the pleasure of seeing first hand how Selfless Love has made a significant impact in such a short amount of time. We look forward to continuing our support and seeing the successes they will continue to achieve on improving the lives of foster youth in our country.

Selfless Love is an organization that truly lives up to its name. I have been a proud supporter over the last few years and most recently have had the honor to serve as a fundraising committee volunteer.

The warmth and dedication radiates through each team member, making it more of a family than an just an organization.

In particular, I must commend Ashley Brown (Founder/CEO). She is the heart and hub around which Selfless Love revolves. Her special connection to foster youth and her drive to create positive change makes her an inspiring role model to all.

The biggest thing that makes Selfless Love so special is that it not only addresses the needs of foster children looking for their forever homes, it also acknowledges the plight of young adults who age out of the system. So many times, these adults are put out on the streets with few tools or skills to survive. Selfless Love fills this gap and provides a chance for these former foster children to succeed.

I am happy to continue my support for this wonderful organization. In this world of uncertainty, Selfless Love is a beacon of hope!

Their abundance of love and selflessness has put our foster youth first, and afforded them essential tools to assist these wonderful children with their transition to adulthood. Their continued efforts have impacted so many lives and saved so many families. I'm proud to be a part of it, and will continue to support them with their mission of helping foster youth achieve their dreams.

A few years ago, Ed and Ashely introduced our firm to this wonderful organization of helping today’s foster kids. As we were all blind to what happens to these teenagers when they age out of the foster care system, their efforts have raise the bar on extending helping hands to these abandon teens. This organizations helps teach life skills, provide housing, and the much needed emotional support to have that chance for a better life. Raising awareness is key and we are so proud to help in the process.

We had the most incredible experience at the Pre- Gala Selfless Love Foundation meet and greet. We had the opportunity to meet some children and their new families. This was such a wonderful opportunity to witness all of their happiness and love. We continue to support this wonderful Selfless Love Foundation and help support them as much as we can.

I’ve been following Selfless Love since it’s inception and their dedication and commitment to changing and improving the lives of foster children, especially those who will age out of the system, is both moving and inspiring. These children are not only given the tools and skills they will need as they transition to adulthood, they are also given love, hope and encouragement to build their self confidence to succeed when they do. That’s selfless love
