About Us

Our Mission

Children of Shelters’ mission is to connect some of the 2,500 children living in or being supported by family transitional shelters to the enrichment and educational opportunities they need to better their chances at ending a life of poverty.

As advocates of the children we serve, we are committed to addressing both their basic and more in-depth needs. From cultural activities, to educational support such as in-shelter tutoring and tuition assistance, our children benefit from growing self-confidence, leadership development and improved education to help them on their way.
