We all have important values and ideas, things we care about and want to share. Sometimes we feel our ideas can even change the world, and we want to let other people know how they can join in and make the lives of Florida Foster childen and run away teens better.

This site will present our organization's cause or ideas to the world. Due to the nature of the different shelters we support, we cannpt identify specific names or faces of the children, except with permisison; but we will convey our message as best we can. We'll also include specific information about our organization and its members.

We hope after reviewing this information, you will want to become a part of the community partners that are making a difference in the lives of others.

       We are able to reach those that other agencies cannot-- due to the nature of the shelters. We have become partners with several shelters and other philanthropic organizations which support 334 children in total. We are also given names of several of our neighborhood families and foster families that are in need of help.


The need for help in our teen shelters keeps growing.   Most of the teens that we service are there for various reasons.  Manyof them have dreams and goals that they are aspiring to achieve, but somewhere along the way, followed the wrong crowd, or made bad choices.  We are there to help them understand that they can embrace where they are, on the way to where they are going.  Failure is not final!  Delays are not denials!

       Operation Unwrap A Smile is an outreach comprised of partners and friends in the community that come together to make a dream come true to a variety of philanthropic organizations, such as Shriners Hospital for Children, Florida Sheriff Youth Ranches, The Children's Home, Florida's Children Services, local nursing homes and shelters for battered women and endangered children.

Mission Statement

The mission and goal of the “Project” is to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves, regardless of age, sex, religion or race.   They strive to develop mature young men & women through empowering inspirational teaching and mentoring.  Our goal is to channel the children/youth in a positive direction by imparting quality values and high self-esteem, so they are able to succeed.  Most importantly, we teach children their circumstances do not determine their future.  Operation Unwrap A Smile’s secondary mission is to help those in our communities become strong individuals which makes strong families, strong schools, strong communities and eventually, strong cities.
