We strive to address the the epidemic of inequalities experienced particularly by children of severely economically disadvantaged and marginalized communities.


Providing a vast array of donations-fueled services, such as: clothing closet; food pantry; diaper and emergency baby formula bank; provision of new car seats; supplemental financial aid and distribution of backpacks & school supplies, thanksgiving food baskets, winter coats and holiday gifts.


We specifically support socio-economically disadvantaged and marginalized communities in these efforts.
