Help kids start the school year off right!

You can make sure a child who has suffered abuse has the necessary supplies to start the school year off on the right foot. Your gift of a backpack, a pair of sneakers, or one of the other supplies listed below will make a huge difference for a child who has suffered the unthinkable.

Children who do not have the correct supplies are more likely to fall behind their peers.
