Stepping Back in Time

Our CEO writes about visiting our affiliated projects in West Virginia

I recently had the privilege of visiting several schools in West Virginia where Children Incorporated offers our child sponsorship program. It had been several years since my last visit to these schools; while I had clear memories from my previous trips, I wasn’t sure what I would find this go-around.

A Magical Time of Year

Our CEO, Ron Carter, reflects this Christmas season on the impact our programs are having

A few years back, my younger daughter, who was in grade school and believed wholeheartedly in Santa Claus at the time, asked me a couple of questions that I have since replayed in my mind time and time again.

Our CEO, Ron Carter, strives to do more for children in 2018
