THE NEEDIEST KIDS JOINS NCCF
The Neediest Kids program joined The National Center for Children's and Families (NCCF) on June 1st, 2013. For over 45 years, The Neediest Kids program helps the 42% of students who are distracted by the deprivation that is associated with poverty in the D.C. area. The Neediest Kids targets students in this powerful region of the world who go without food, adequate clothing, dental and vision care. Once these basic needs are met, students are able to refocus and feel more like their peers.
FUNDED SOLELY BY DONORS
In the past three years, The Neediest Kids has served over 117,000 students who live poverty. The program is funded SOLELY by individuals and corporations who make a direct impact on these barriers, to ensure that poverty stricken youth have the same shot as the 58% of their peers at becoming economic contributors to a world society.
