"...recently, the former first lady made a rare post-White House outing to tour Place of Hope, one of the largest foster care agencies in Palm Beach County, Florida and a respected safe haven for children in need.
'Melania toured the facilities due to it being foster care awareness month,' a source from Place of Hope tells PEOPLE of the May 3 tour. 'The former First Lady met with several students on campus and discussed the foster care system and what happens when students age out.'
The source adds that Melania was at the Palm Beach Gardens facility for 'more than an hour, and was quite friendly and interested in asking questions. The kids said she was excited to see the place and learn more,' the source continues. 'They felt she has a real heart for the aged out foster kids. She specifically asked for a meeting with the former foster youth because she knows that is a major issue she wants to tackle more.'"
