On June 29th, I'll be running the Take Your Base 5K in Coney Island with my favorite non-profit, Fostering Change for Children! These guys are wonderful and do a lot of on-the-ground work that promotes positive change in the New York City child welfare system. I'm a member of their Children's Corps program, but they have other programs aimed at improving the system too. Any donation that you could provide would help out all the kiddos out there!
Check out FCFC's mission statement below, as well as their website and FB page:
"Fostering Change for Children is a non-profit organization that innovates and promotes positive change within the child welfare system. We aim to inspire new and different ways of thinking and working.
Based in New York, our organization is dedicated to improving the lives of children, families, and the individuals that support them through a wide range of innovative programs and professional trainings focused on fostering meaningful connections and finding positive and permanent solutions for youth in foster care.
While we approach the system holistically, one child at a time is a necessary mantra: it helps us focus on individuals while never losing sight of the bigger picture."
