A Host of Programs for Kids in Need

Our volunteer coordinator, Alicia, at Morgan County High School, makes sure children have activities to keep them busy and learning

Morgan County is located in the northeastern part of Kentucky amongst a terrain of rolling hillsides, with no true mountains. The Licking River, the main waterway in the county, runs through its eponymous valley, which houses the county seat, West Liberty. It is a truly beautiful county, although not an area of our country without its problems. Morgan County was never a very active coal mining area, although it was — and continues to be […]

Providing Stability in New Mexico

While dealing with trauma at home, our sponsorship program offers consistency for children in need

The town of Bloomfield, where our affiliated project, the Hanaa Dli Community School/Dormitory, is located, is known as New Mexico’s “tableland” — a desert crisscrossed by gullies and washes in the United States’ Navajo Nation. Families in this community live in traditional Navajo hogans, made of logs and mud, in remote areas that make a daily commute for children to the closest schools not viable. Additionally, poverty, unemployment, and a sense of hopelessness pervade Navajo […]

Seeking Ways to Alleviate Child Hunger Around the World

A letter from our CEO and President, Ron Carter

I love grocery stores!  I admit it. I really do.  I find a lot of joy in shopping for food. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of trips to the grocery store or food markets with family members. When I was really small, I spent Saturdays with my Aunt Louise and Grandmother Pierce while my parents worked. Every Saturday morning, my aunt would shop for groceries, and she always took me with her. At […]

A School Full of Sponsored Children

At Lake Valley Boarding School, every child in attendance is in the Children Incorporated sponsorship program

Even by Navajo reservation standards, our affiliated project, the Lake Valley Boarding School, is located in an incredibly remote area of New Mexico, which makes our partnership with the school incredibly valuable to both the children and the school’s administrators. In fact, there are a total of 32 students in attendance at Lake Valley – each of which is sponsored through our sponsorship program. “Over the years, there has been talk of closing the school and […]

Keeping Kids Active at Mariano Lake

In New Mexico, our volunteer coordinator, Barbara, works hard to offer activities for children in her dormitories

The remote town of Crown Point is located in northwestern New Mexico, near the Arizona border and the vast Navajo Indian Reservation. Many of the American Indian families in this area generate income by making and selling jewelry and pottery. A few families maintain small herds of livestock. Unemployment is high, and many parents rely upon public assistance as their only means to afford the cost of feeding and clothing their children. Our affiliated project, […]
