How We Work

Children Incorporated partners with already-established schools, group homes, and community centers to address the specific needs of the children they serve, offering each child basic needs every month.

Our volunteer coordinators at each of our affiliated sites also inform us about the greater needs of each child’s families, the sites where they work, and the local community so we can offer lasting support that creates real change on a global scale.

United States

In the United States, we work in eight states, both in inner cities and rural areas, including in the Navajo Nation. Sponsoring a child in the U.S. provides them with basic necessities, such as food, clothing, school supplies, and hygiene items. Your support helps ensure children have the vital essentials they need to grow up healthy, remain in school, and get a quality education in a safe and supportive environment.

We work in 19 countries in Central America, South America, Asia, and Africa. When you sponsor a child internationally, you are providing them food, clothing, healthcare, and the opportunity to receive an education. For as little as $35 a month, you can ensure that children living in poverty have a chance at a better a brighter future.
