About Us

City of Life Foundation in Orlando, FL was founded in 2000 as a grassroots volunteer organization. As a 501(c)(3) organization, we aid the foster care system in preparing the youth as they integrate themselves into the community. For more than 22 years, we have been offering these young people the tools, opportunities, and chances to pursue their dreams.

Our team is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of the youth. Additionally, we aim to help the community and its youth grow.

Our Mission

At City of Life Foundation, we work on leveraging existing community resources to make a difference in the lives of young people in the foster care system. Our establishment works with organizations, such as Goodwill, and Embrace Families to ensure that the youth will have stable careers as they enter adulthood.

We help them gain the necessary skills through mentoring, housing, and job training. Our self-sustaining programs are tailored to provide jobs and structure to former foster youth. In addition, we prepare them for life’s challenges by ensuring their mental and physical wellness.
