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, staff, and weekly volunteers. The leadership, staff, and volunteers are dedicated to supporting 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.
