We inspire communities to bring dignity and hope to youth in foster care.

On any given day, there are approximately 437,500 children in foster care in the United States. Most of them are removed from their homes with little more than the clothes on their backs. If they do have any personal belongings, they are given a trash bag in which to carry them.

As women came to us from increasingly diverse circumstances, we rapidly created diverse programs to help them. In 1984, we sought out women on the streets with a nightly outreach route by van, and Madison’s new “Blue Room” served women who were elderly or very ill. A year later, we began a job training program in Madison’s kitchen and opened a new domestic violence crisis shelter with ample room for 5 women and their children.

The Foundation’s mission is to promote secure and safe openings that enhance life safety through awareness and education to the building design, code authority, and facility management communities. A primary objective within this mission is to support the annual fire/egress door inspection initiative by creating awareness of this important update to the NFPA 80 and 101 standards, and their inclusion in the International Building Code and International Fire Code. Through our educational efforts we help stakeholders understand the code implications and complexity of the products and applications.
