A journey to




The journey to adulthood can be full of excitement, growth, and change.

Young adults with foster care experience often miss out on the support and guidance needed during this time, reducing their chances to locate safe housing, find steady employment, and build stable and strong relationships.

Without the needed guidance and support, they are more likely to experience homelessness and become involved with the criminal justice system, and less likely to graduate from high school or college.

Despite the barriers, they are resilient and can make a positive transition if given the opportunity.

When you make a gift to Selfless Love Foundation, you provide support, resources, and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to help youth who are aging out of the child welfare system become self-sufficient, thriving adults.

Thanks to Selfless Love Foundation’s generous supporters.

We advocate to ensure that transitioning youth have access to quality services and the support they need to thrive.

The journey to adulthood








01. Support

Brown’s Harbor

Through a partnership with Children’s Harbor, Selfless Love Foundation formed Brown’s Harbor, a supportive housing community that bridges the gap from dependence to independence. Brown’s Harbor offers on-site staff, training, and support services for youth, ages 18-23, who have aged out of foster care. 

Brown’s Boutique

Located at Brown’s Harbor, Brown’s Boutique offers residents a place to “shop” for free clothing to help them feel confident about their everyday and business attire.

Empowerment workshops
Empowerment workshops such as Resume Building, support efforts for foster youth  to build the skills required to live independently and empower them to successfully transition into adulthood.
Life Skills Re-imagined is a learner-centric, online platform revolutionizing life skills education for youth working towards self-sufficiency. The 9-month program covers five critical topics: personal finance, getting and keeping a job, resiliency, independent living, and communication skills.



Each year, Selfless Love Foundation offers more than 50 youth who were in foster care the opportunity to participate in a Dale Carnegie leadership training program. This high-level training teaches youth to think on their feet, create professional connections, communicate effectively, and build their self-confidence. 

Dream tank

The Dream Tank Competition is the capstone of Selfless Love Foundation’s independent living initiative. Finalists from across Florida are selected for an intensive, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

During the nine-month-long process, the finalists receive 150 hours of training in speech writing and presentation, professional etiquette, investment basics, and more.

At the Dream Tank Competition, each youth presents their dream to a panel of judges. They are judged on their content, organization, delivery, and stage presence.

The winner is announced at Selfless Love Foundation’s annual gala. Each finalist receives $1,000, and the winner receives a $5,000 award.

Show your support by signing the youth voice pledge!

We are hoping to have 1000 people show their support for youth in foster care by signing the Youth Voice Pledge.

Former Foster Youth




One Voice Impact (OVI) is a youth engagement initiative powered by Selfless Love Foundation that provides current and former foster youth opportunities to develop skills for leadership and life, advocate for changes to policy, and join a network of youth leaders in Florida and Texas to improve the system of care.


OVI’s Network of Youth Councils seeks to harness authentic youth voices, giving youth with lived experience opportunities to work alongside system leaders to find solutions to local issues, and give councils a platform for statewide collaboration.

Dale Carnegie Leadership Training

“Participating in Dale Carnegie Leadership Training is providing me with tools I’ll use for a lifetime!”


Brown’s Harbor

If I want to be successful, I must first believe in myself, I know that I am capable of anything, and live out these beliefs every day. The leadership trainings have taught me that if I don’t believe in myself first, nobody else will.


Dale Carnegie Training

Dale Carnegie Training taught me how to communicate in my personal and professional life.

When I was 17, I was left homeless for two months and still in high school. Then I found Brown’s Harbor and my life changed forever.
