From The Founder
You know the song by Passenger that goes,
"You only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow..."
Well, I didn't realize the depth of those words until watching my mother take her last breath.
And when a youth is left without parents, life quickly becomes different.
Fortunately, I became a legally emancipated minor, and did not enter the foster care system. But many orphaned children today remain in a neglected system and never gain access to their unique path of success.
Storge Foundation was established to provide opportunities and individual sponsorships for foster youth as they transition into adulthood.
Because sometimes, it only takes one helping hand to change a future.
The Greek word, Storge, meaning "parental love," reflects our mission at Storge Foundation – one that is very close to my heart.
