The key to the Future Foundation’s success is our “Second Family” model—a network of supportive adults who provide our students with another layer of educational and emotional guidance and inspiration. The Second Family reinforces our students’ inherent value and helps them find their own path to success.
Part of our Second Family network is our hard-working Board of Directors and Advisory Council. These community and business leaders use their expertise to inspire us, educate us, and work with us and our students to build a brighter future for our organization, our city, and our world. Here is our Second Family.
