Making a Difference, In Honor of Clara Zabriski

Clara’s Secret Shepherds Foundation was founded in 2011 to honor the memory of Clara Eagan Zabriski, a little girl from Jupiter, Fla. who liked to help people. The Foundation continues the family’s annual tradition of purchasing Christmas gifts for in-need children in Palm Beach County Foster Care.

In 2014, the Foundation extended its reach by partnering with ChildNet and Friends of foster Children of Palm Beach County to expand the spirit of giving all year round to Clara’s Kids. Providing services that foster caregivers and children so desperately need to enrich their lives, from eye glasses, basic toiletries, dental assistance, senior high school yearbooks to duffel bags for the child that turns 18 and needs to pack for his or her next move.

Our vision is to inspire people to make a difference in the lives of abused, abandoned or neglected foster children in South Florida through financial generosity and volunteer commitment.

Our goal is to raise money and awareness for the hundreds of foster children in South Florida and the thousands across the country who are living in limbo waiting to be reunited with their relatives or be adopted by non-biological “forever families.“
