A FOSTERED CHILD ORGANIZATION™ [email protected]
Hello, Born into neglectet ; I was forced to live the life of a "Fostered Child". Left without choice, at the age of seventeen, I transitioned into "Independent Living". At the age of eighteen, I aged out of the system as a "Ward of the State". Growing up in this way enabled me to learn at an early age not to take life for granted. Acknowledging all who has provided for me, I will continue to sow seeds of love into the lives of others.
This organization was formed, and operates exclusively for 501(c)3 purposes.
AFCO™ provides quality pajamas, undergarments, accessories, haircare, hygiene care, and a host of other needed products to abused, fostered, neglected, and homeless children at no cost.
