The Black Rose Foundation for Children, Inc. (BRFC) is a not-for-profit charitable organization founded in 2005 by Dr. Sheila Flemming-Hunter and her daughters Attorney Alero Afejuku and Dr. Ayo Afejuku. The vision of BRFC is to ensure that children, especially abandoned children have unlimited opportunities to excel in all walks of life. The mission is to provide resources to organizations seeking to empower children, through programs, services and advocacy.

We seek to provide experiences for children who are adversely affected by their environment, social and economic challenges and who have been abused, become parentless, and encumbered behavioral and emotional challenges. Our primary goal is to raise funds through support from individuals, philanthropists, organizations, and corporations who want to contribute to a successful life for children.

BRF is 501(c)(3) approved. We accept contributions from interested parties who want to support our mission. We also accept proposals and concept papers for funding from non-profit organizations that are compatible with our mission and goal. Programs and services in Memphis, TN, Atlanta, GA, and Jacksonville, FL are our current geographic focus areas for funding.
