PROGRAMS

These programs are designed for children between the ages of 0 - 18 whose parent(s) are incarcerated, deceased, or the underserved.  We focus on providing those children’s physical needs in order to relieve the financial strain on their caregivers, while creating positive childhood memories in the absence of their parent(s).  We created each program to include activities that leave smiles on their faces.
