The foundation continues to use fashion as a platform to help other local charities but, expanded its mission to support emerging designers and with the launch of SFIFW, FFACF’s capital campaign, FFACF is working to secure a location where they can:
- continue facilitating fashion and art apprenticeship programs;

- support at-risk youth through various fashion and art programs; and
- offer work space for emerging designers and artists in general.
