Our Mission

Believing that every child deserves a healthy and happy childhood, Norfolk Friends of Foster Care (NFFC) is committed to enriching the lives of foster children in our community. Foster children often miss out on key elements of a healthy and happy childhood, such as a stable family environment, extracurricular activities and enrichment programs, and individualized tutoring/mentoring, due to lack of a family placement, funding limitations, and insufficient access to supplementary programs.

The mission of NFFC is to address these issues through

  1. Targeted outreach to increase the number of available family foster homes, thereby reducing the need for group-home placements for children

  2. Providing funding for enrichment programs that bridge the gap between what is available from public services and those elements that are essential to a healthy and happy childhood.

Through its philanthropy, NFFC strives to ensure all children in the foster care system have the best childhood possible.
