About

About Us:
Fabulous Friends in Philanthropy Inc. is a non-profit organization that was created to promote charitable giving while empowering homeless girls.

The fastest growing group of homeless people is children under 9 years of   age.  Georgia ranks 49th overall for the number of homeless children.  In total, there are 58,397 homeless children – 26,329 are enrolled in K-8 and 56% are African-American.  48% of all the children in Atlanta in poverty live in families with annual incomes of less than $15,000 a year.

Our primary goal is to reduce conditions contributing to the lack of access.   We accomplish this through our Petals in Bloom Scholarship Fund, promotion of  charitable giving and collaboration with local agencies, government and businesses to assist in the prevention of homelessness in our community.
