A child in poverty dreams about what it would be like to attend a sports game, a play, or a music performance…
Our Education Programs teach children in foster care and poverty the vital skills needed succeed in life.
Why teach at-risk children life skills?
74% 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 youth in foster care to graduate from high school and succeed in college. Delaware’s high school graduation rate for foster children is way below the national average. This program changes these statistics by giving teens the support they need to obtain a high school degree and succeed in a career after graduation.
After School Education Programs teach underserved children the socio-emotional and academic skills needed for a bright future

We provide life experiences to children in need and helpful support services for children in foster care.
Why provide Help-A-Kid Services?
Children in foster care and poverty often do not have many life experiences. Each year, we provide over $15,000 in life opportunity event experiences that brighten children’s lives and broaden their horizons. Children in foster care are victims of abuse and neglect. They are removed from their own homes for their own safety. Scared and lonely, the children need help during this painful time in their young lives.
