LifeUnfolded is a non-profit organization founded on the principles that all children have a chance to succeed, if given the opportunity to discover their own strengths. The organization is made of professional artists who have found and succeeded by utilizing their own creative strengths, and have dedicated their lives to finding that strength in foster children who's next step in life is to build the next generation. Transitional-aged foster children are the most over-looked and under-nurtured of all children who remain in the
foster system. Since they are beginning their lives as citizens and contributors to the community- it is of urgency to guide them toward success.
