At Alves Foundation, we believe in the power of family, compassion, and the enduring bonds that can change lives. If you’re looking for an extraordinary opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of young adults who have aged out of the Foster Care System, we invite you to consider becoming a part of our extended family.

Our Journey of Commitment and Transformation

Alves Foundation is much more than a non-profit organization; it is a beacon of hope and change in the heart of Polk County. Our journey began with an act of compassion and determination, when our President André Alves, at age 15, welcomed a man facing homelessness into his home. This altruistic act gave rise to Alves Foundation, an entity dedicated to combating homelessness and supporting young adults who leave the Foster Care System without stable placements.

Our mission is clear: to empower those who need help, break the cycle of homelessness, and provide opportunities for these young people to reach their full potential. We are not limited to just offering housing; Our holistic approach involves love, unwavering support, mentoring and life skills training. We give these young people the security of a home so they can focus on their education and bright futures.

Alves Foundation is not content with just addressing the symptoms of the problem; We are committed to solving the root of the issue. With the BrightStart Network, our bold initiative, we seek partnerships with the local business community. Compassionate entrepreneurs have the opportunity to not only make a difference in the lives of these youth in foster care, but also to enhance their business with high-quality marketing services from Reimagine Digital Marketing. Together, we can transform lives, create a brighter future and strengthen our community. Be part of this journey of compassion and transformation with Alves Foundation.
