Review for Best Foot Forward , Boca Raton, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The is a phenomenal organization that does amazing work with foster children in Palm Beach County. The results speak for themselves, 100% of the children that Best Foot Forward has worked with have graduated from high school. They are currently working with over 200 children in support of their academic needs. They provide a consistency that most of these children have never experienced to support their educational and emotional needs.

Review for Best Foot Forward , Boca Raton, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Best Foot Forward is the most amazing organization that I have ever been a part of. I have been on the Board since its inception and have seen Donna and Debbie grow this organization into an incredibly loving organization that supports foster children through all of their educational needs. They help tutor these young people for their academics, but also teach them life skills often starting with such basics as looking someone in the eye when you talk, to skills such as organization, speaking to a group, and completing applications. The success that the organization has had (100% high school graduation rate) for all of the young people they support is nothing short of miraculous. This type of success is not experienced with even the best demographic group, much less children who have often not been given love and support from parents.

The stories of success directly from some of the kids who have gone on to college which they did not even dream to aspire to can tell the tale correctly. They are so grateful for the fact that Best Foot Forward support them and never gives up on them and allows them to dream of a better future.

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

Allow the organization to reach even more foster care children.
