The Children's Fund is a non-profit organization connecting underserved youth in Pierce County, Washington to enrichment opportunities.
The Children's Fund seeks to increase engagement opportunities for historically underserved youth through supporting activities that build confidence, encourage growth, and increase resilience for children affected by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
In Washington, we are facing a crisis, as a growing number of children are in need of safe and holistic enrichment opportunities. Pierce County alone has over 1,500 children currently residing in foster care. These children are a part of our communities, our schools, and our neighborhoods.
The Children’s Fund recognizes the impacts of oppressive systems and injustices that make it harder for some than others to thrive. These systems not only cause harder lives for some individuals, they also contribute to unhealthy communities. Our work is towards leveling the playing field so that every child has access to fun, engaging experiences that will help them thrive.
