MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR, MATT STEFEN

Hi, I’m Matt Steffen, Director of Fun for Fosters.

We are a Special Interest Group that takes ZERO government funding. All of efforts are fueled with hard-work, and donations from benevolent people like you.

This website is filled with seemingly endless tragic facts concerning foster kids in New Jersey. These facts make me sad, and I’m sure they do the same to you as well.

I was a foster child,

and my current success notwithstanding, being abandoned by the people that were supposed to love me the most still haunts me today. Luckily for me, I had the right combination of people, places and things to improve my own life, and leave me an active player in my own collective destiny.

I would like to ask you for a favor.

Can you please help our team brighten the lives of foster kids all over New Jersey?

What we do is not work and doesn’t cost money, in fact, it’s free and a lot of fun! While people are looking for friends and interaction at bars and on social media, we are improving the lives of foster kids in New Jersey while making friends and having fun doing it.

Today I would like you to join our team and become a Fostarian. A Fostarian is a person who works toward improving the lives of foster children. We can only do so much for these foster kids, but with you, we can do so much more.

To your success!
