Our Team

The Alicia Rose Victorious Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit incorporated in the state of New Jersey in 2002. The work we do is accomplished by a governing Board of Trustees, a paid staff, and dedicated volunteers. The leadership, staff, and volunteers are dedicated to providing strength and support to hospitalized children across the country through our Victorious 4 Teens programs.

The Board of Trustees assumes a varied set of duties and responsibilities including strategic governance and oversight, fundraising support, and advisory services to help ensure the Foundation operates efficiently and effectively.
