Because We Care
By partnering with other non-profits, community resources, and schools, we are able to give disadvantaged children a chance to thrive.
Parents of disabled children and kinship care families are often in need of financial, educational, and support services but don’t know who to call for assistance; and are often left feeling discouraged and confused. Resource Guidance services, guide these families to the appropriate community resources to apply for services.
Paper Chase – Organizing your Child’s Documents - Advocating for a disabled child is easier when parents/caregivers are organized and prepared to discuss the child’s needs and any concerns. It is very important and time-consuming to organize a child’s IEP and medical documents, but it must be done. The benefits of organizations: quick retrieval of documents, track the child’s progress, less stress for parents/caregivers, and allow parents/caregivers and schools to work as a team with meeting the child’s needs. This workshop will provide parents/caregivers with the skills needed to organize their child's records, know what records to keep, how to create documents, and how to maintain the system.

Health: Diapers and Wipes
Diapers are essential to the daily care of an infant, toddler, and for some special needs children. Yet, one out of every three families can’t afford diapers. The diaper need is so great that sometimes, these families reuse soiled diapers. Children who remain in a soiled diaper are at risks for serious health problems. The Diapers and Wipes program distribute diapers and wipes to families in need.
Feeding: Food Rescue
Nearly one in five children lives in households that struggle to put food on the table. Some children depend on school lunch as their only source of food. Hungry kids tend to have trouble learning, are prone to behavioral and emotional problems, and more likely to experience serious health issues. The Food Rescue program ensures these children are fed all summer long and beyond.
Educational: Equip a Child for School
Schools are facing severe budgets cuts and lack the funding to purchase the necessary supplies. We all know that kids need adequate supplies to be successful in school. The Equip a Child for School program provides school supplies to children in need and help teachers who are forced to use their personal money to buy classroom supplies for their neediest students.
We are run solely by volunteers. All donations are used to support our mission.
