In 1990, with my acting career in full swing I started RFCCP, a non-profit charitable organization offering scholarships to help children in foster care thrive through participation in fine arts classes, sports camps, and cultural enrichment activities. Our goal is simple: to help children who would otherwise not have a chance to reach their full potential. We strive to offer children the same long-term commitment and opportunities that foster parents, social workers, and mentors can provide. I believe that exposing them to these various disciplines at an early age enriches their lives more than we know, just as they did for me and others like me.
Victoria has two children in all. Her fist child named Maya(pictured to the right) is from her first marriage to Tom Fahey. Her second child,a son named Jasper(pictured to the left) is from her relationship with jazz musician Wynton Marsalis.
