About Fostering Success

For the first time, Athletes and Celebrities from various walks of life and diversities are coming together to build a dynamic brand bringing awareness, light, and impact all on one platform – Fostering Success. The Fostering Success brand is comprised of elite athletes and celebrities coming together on two impactful yearly projects. One is a published book and the second a gala for success, both entities are giving foster children an opportunity to expand their worlds and allowing them to know they have not been forgotten or abandoned.

The Founder

Steven Benedict

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.

The Mission

To restore hope and encourage growth by providing genuine guidance, opportunities for sport and art and to oppose the abandonment mindset of Foster Kids.

CONNECTION

Fostering Success believes that every child has the right to be fully seen and truly heard. This principle is in place to counteract the abandonment and separation these children often feel.

CONSISTENCY

Fostering Success believes every child has the right to rely on people in their life. Whether it is caregivers, family or friends this principle is in place to oppose the inconsistency and often sporadic changes to their security.

COMPASSION

Fostering Success believes every child has an important purpose and in guiding them into adulthood, care should come with understanding and compassion for the experiences and post-trauma that may accompany them as they grow.
