One of our goals at FDSF is Quality Education. The Family Development and Samaritan Foundation uses our platform in the community and globally to provide access to the basic needs for educational success to all children regardless of race, gender and religion. One avenue of meeting this goal is through hosting various programs including but not limited to...
Annual Back to School Drive
Our Back to School Drive takes place at the end of summer each year. During this event, hundreds of students are given the tools that are needed to start the school year off prepared for academic success.
FDSF gives parents and students an opportunity to extend learning outside the classroom by providing academic and social support to students through tutoring and mentoring programs.
Summer Enrichment & Camp
Throughout the summer months when school is out, FDSF offers enrichment and summer camp programs to keep students active and learning. These camps appeal to the growing interests of children, covering activities of reading, sports and games, arts and crafts, music, cultures, cooking, STEM and so much more.
Not only does FDSF serve children and families in the United States, our efforts are also carried abroad to other parts of the world. The Family Development and Samaritan Foundation has helped in providing school supplies, clothes & shoes and food to children in many countries spanning across Africa and Asia.
