A child in poverty dreams about what it would be like to attend a sports game, a play, or a music performance…
We deliver LifeSkills Education Programs to give at-risk children vital skills to succeed in life.
Why teach at-risk children life skills?
66% of children in foster care do not graduate from high school, and 92% of youth are jobless when “aging out” of the system at age 18.
Incarceration rates are 63% higher for children who drop out of high school, and poverty rates triple.
Our innovative UGrad Program helps foster youth to graduate from high school. Delaware’s high school graduation rate for foster children is way below the national average. According to federal statistics, 72% of Delaware foster teens do NOT graduate from high school. This program will change that. It gives teens the support they need to obtain a high school degree and succeed in a career after graduation.

Why provide Help-A-Kid Services?
Children in foster care and poverty often do not have many life experiences. We give the children experiences that brighten their lives and broaden their horizons. Children in foster care are victims of abuse and neglect, and removed from their own homes for their own safety. Scared and lonely, the children need help during this painful time in their young lives.
