Help support our Children First Fund

Thank you for helping us to meet needs, create opportunities, and transform lives!

Do you want to know how your gift makes a difference?

Your support of the Children First Fund allows us to go beyond our mandated services to provide life-changing resources that are not government funded to the children, youth, and families that we work with within three areas of impact.

Your gifts ensure that the vulnerable children, youth, and families we serve have the essential support they need to meet their basic needs, overcome barriers, and thrive.

With your support, we can give the children, youth, and families we serve every opportunity to succeed and build a lifetime of their own unstoppable success!

Children First Fund Areas of Impact

Building Opportunities for Youth Success

Youth leaving care need our support! Your gifts ensure that youth have what they need to be empowered to realize their dreams!

Meeting Urgent Needs

Your gifts ensure that our children, youth, and families meet their basic needs when they can’t access the support they need elsewhere.

Enriching Lives

Your gifts provide enrichment opportunities that deeply impact the lives of vulnerable children, youth, and families.

Your gifts make an incredible difference…

The children, youth, and families that we work with are some of the strongest and most resilient individuals we know, and we want to provide them with every opportunity to succeed.

Your gifts make it possible for us to increase access to enrichment opportunities, educational support, life skills, essential needs, and community resources to build strong and resilient families.

What kind of things do my gifts support?

The Children First Fund fills critical funding gaps for the children, youth, and families that we serve ensuring that they can access the support they need when they have nowhere else to turn.

Supports provided by our Children First Fund are highly individualized and designed to empower our children, youth, and families to overcome the biggest challenges in their lives.
