Over 100% of your donations goes to our mission of providing toys, books, and other gifts to less fortunate children.

FRF was established to inspire and motivate youth to become involved in community activities, set goals and take responsibility for their own lives and neighborhoods. For individuals with special needs, participation in sports not only increases self-esteem and engages them in a healthy and active lifestyle, but also increases their sense of self-worth, while encouraging them to expand and explore their career aspirations.

 

FRF offers both group and individual tutoring, after school and counseling activities. As FRF continues to bolster the Community Outreach Program, the aim is to reduce isolation and provide positive role models for youth. Parental interaction skills and crisis intervention will be the primary tools used to achieve success in their lives. Lastly, by providing professional and emotional support through the programs of FRF the goal is to have a long-term impact on the children, families and the community.
