About Us


On November 23, 2016, the world lost an incredibly genuine and exceptional young man, Abhi Shah (son of Pratik & Sangeen Shah).  Abhi was a loving son, loyal friend, and role model to everyone around him.  Anyone that knew Abhi could attest to his vibrant personality and his passion for helping others succeed.  He was always the first person to take the time to simply talk, laugh, or offer his advice when you would need it the most.  He lived every day to the fullest and because of that, he lived more in his 20 years of life than most people do in a lifetime.  In remembrance of Abhi and all of the happiness he brought to many, the Abhi Shah Foundation was founded on January 9, 2017 to carry on his legacy and passion by devoting time and effort in order to provide hope, happiness, and the opportunity to succeed for local foster children and victims of human trafficking.


Our vision is to enrich the lives of children by providing hope, happiness and the opportunity to excel.


We inspire with the power of a smile to enhance children’s future through community outreach programs, mentorship, education, and volunteering.
