Today's Kids. Tomorrow's Future.

Helping children in need through programs that empower them and enhance their lives.

Break the cycle of poverty among children in the communities we serve and give them hope.

Help children in need by providing programs that empower them and enhance their lives.

Children whose families live at or below poverty level.

Kids Matter International is passionate about helping children who live in poverty by providing basic needs such as new clothing and shoes, books and backpacks. We believe that each child is precious and should be treated with dignity, respect, and given hope for a better future.

Kids Matter has been working every day to improve the quality of life of children living in poverty since our inception as a non-profit organization in 2006.

Through our work to enhance the lives of these children and their families, we still witness an overwhelming number of disadvantaged children who are in need of basic necessities like clothing and food, school supplies, and educational programs.

With your support, Kids Matter is able to continue helping the thousands of children receive these basic necessities and continue to empower them through educational programs such as our Ramp Up Reading Literacy Program.

Together, we can make a difference and enhance the lives of more children, because all Kids Matter.

Why Giving Matters

Growing up in poverty is one of the greatest threats to a child’s development and their ability to learn. It can contribute to poor health, behavioral, social and emotional problems.  The risks posed by economic hardship are greatest among children who experience poverty when they are young. With the right support, we can provide all children with the basic necessities and the opportunity to reach their full potential.

With the support of hundreds of volunteers, corporate partners, and individuals, we have clothed, fed, educated and enhanced the lives of thousands of children and their families throughout the United States.

Invest in a child's future

Kids Matter is always in need of more passionate individuals looking to get involved in their charitable community. As a Kids Matter volunteer, you will interact with children who benefit directly from the one-to-one interaction with a person in the community who is volunteering their time and cares about the child’s wellbeing.

Through our programs and fundraising events to enhance the lives of these children and their families, we still witness an overwhelming number of disadvantaged children who are in need of basic necessities like clothing and food, school supplies, and educational programs.

Volunteer with Kids Matter and make an impact in these children's lives.

This charity is passionate about serving kids in need. This November, over 2,000 kids received new clothes, shoes, backpacks, and books at the annual Around the Block clothing program. I support Kids Matter because of their mission to help children; they hold a Platinum rating (highest rating) through GuideStar; and their recent independent financial audit confirmed that 87% of their expenditures goes to support programs and services.
