We have an orphan problem in America
It usually surprises people when they hear it for the first time. We have an orphan problem in America. In our country, the most affluent in the world, we have half a million orphans—children living on the streets, in group homes, and in foster care. South Florida is no exception: every day, seven kids in South Florida are removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect.
4KIDS' Vision, “A Home For Every Child in Crisis,” speaks to the solvable nature of the problem. It’s that simple. If we find a home for a child in crisis, that child finds HOPE. Over 15 years, we’ve seen this proven again and again though a partnership of committed churches, corporations, foundations, and individuals. Working collectively, we are making a difference one child at a time, and fulfilling our Mission of “Providing Hope…For Kids in Crisis.”
Local and national leaders have recognized that 4KIDS is the model of how to help kids in crisis. More than 17,000 children have experienced HOPE through ordinary people. We call these people Undercover Heroes because most of their acts of sacrifice and generosity go unnoticed by everyone except the child…and God.
We invite you to join us! Pursuing this vision requires flexibility and ingenuity. With your partnership, together we will bring hope to our most precious asset, our children. There is much to do until every child has a home!
