“IT IS NOT ONLY TO HAVE EXCEPTIONAL GIFTS
BUT TO USE THEM EXCEPTIONALLY”

About Fostering Success
Fostering Success was founded by professional athlete, Steven Benedict. Upon his return from competing overseas, he felt a profound need to build something bigger than himself. As a successful athlete who has represented national brands and attended global events, many people find it hard to believe Steven has also experienced first hand the foster care system. He was placed in foster care due to severe physical abuse before he was 4 years old. Displaced and abandoned, Steven and his younger brother were moved from home to home for over 5 years. This desire to be a voice for these kids comes from the deep understanding of how they feel. For him this is more than another charity. He was once a child with a trash bag for suitcase and now he is passionate to use his platform to restore hope to these kids.
