Today, nearly 500,000 American children are in foster care because their own families are in crisis and unable to provide for their essential well-being. Children in foster care require safe, stable, and nurturing environments to live until they can either safely reunite with their parents or establish other life-long family relationships.
Being Beautiful Foundation was formed by Valerie Crabbe. Valerie is a mother of three who spent most of her adult life sacrificing for her own children. After successfully raising her children, Valerie opened her home to take in other children who were less fortunate providing a safe, stable and nurturing environment for them to grow, learn and develop. Over the past 10 years, Valerie and her husband filled their own home to capacity fostering many children and adopting two of them as their own daughters, Angela who is now age 18 and Audelia is 13.
Angela recently graduated with honors from North Penn High School and received a full scholarship to Lasalle University where she is studying to become a full time Registered Nurse. Audelia is in middle school and has developed into a wonderful caring loving young lady and just enjoys spending time with Mom and doing things like watching movies, making jewelry, reading books together and just having fun.
Through patience, love and caring, both Angela & Audelia’s lives took a totally different course from what the future might have very welled looked liked for them before being adopted. Today they are both happy-well balanced, loving and caring kids.
“Being a part of the amazing transformation in the life of a child is the most fulfilling experience that life has to offer.”
Imagine a place where children who have only known fear, pain and hunger, learn to laugh, play , trust and love. The goal of Being Beautiful Foundation is to educate and promote awareness for other families to “get involved” by opening their homes to children who are at risk of abuse or neglect by providing a safe, stable and nurturing environment for them to grow, learn and develop.
Being Beautiful Foundation is dedicated to providing a comprehensive array of residential and community based services to me the needs of youth by addressing their physical, emotional, social, educational and spiritual development.
