Our Mission

Tidewater Friends of Foster Care (TFFC) is committed to enriching the lives of foster children in our community, because we believe that every child deserves an opportunity to thrive! Due to the inherent instability in family environment, foster children often miss out on key elements of a healthy and happy childhood, such as consistent family routines, enrollment in a single school system, and participation in enriching activities.  Consequently, these children struggle emotionally and academically, with outcomes that reflecting this strife.

Through its philanthropy, TFFC strives to ensure that children in the foster care system have access to resources that afford them the opportunity to thrive.

What We Do:

  • Outreach to raise awareness of the needs of children in foster care and to increase the number of available foster family homes, thereby reducing the need for group-home placements.
  • Provide enrichment programs that bridge the gap between what is available from public services and those elements that are essential to a healthy, happy and thriving childhood.
