Spirit of a Child Foundation
The Spirit of a Child Foundation is a growing voice for the country's most vulnerable citizens - children.
One vision guides our mission - to help families grow stronger. We've seen first hand the tremendous voids in the system hindering the development of millions of children nationwide. Our objective is to identify and overcome the obstacles impeding parent-child relationships. Poverty; acrimony between parents; substance abuse; and violence in homes, in schools and on the streets are just a few things affecting children. The legacy for them is too often a new generation of dysfunctional families, attachment disorders, low self-esteem, depression, gangs, teenage pregnancies, school dropouts, and much more. It's time to break the cycle.
We believe that children are life's most precious gifts and that each child should have joy, laughter and a future filled with possibilities. Nurture a child's inner spirit with time, presence, gentle encouragement and plenty of love, and that child will grow to be an emotionally healthy adult. Through our funding, programs and partnerships, we focus on issues that government programs do not currently or adequately address. We help established organizations provide the necessary tools and valuable knowledge for parents to love their children and help them understand that developing a strong family unit is important. We offer tools that give parents the ability to create a nurturing bond with their children - one that will last a lifetime.
