About

Pay forward the blessings in your life – 

        Make a gift of security for someone else. 

  •   Do it in honor of the ones you love. 
  •   Do it in appreciation for those who cared about you.
  •   Do it in memory of the girl who came first. 

        Someone paid it forward for her 120 years ago.


       

When you give $120 or more on this site – you remember Cassie, the first child through our doors.

        AND your gift is matched, dollar for dollar.

        AND you will get your own pair pair of these snazzy custom-designed heart socks!

Some children have to ask ...

Will I be fed tonight? Will I be safe?

         Will I be loved?

Worries like these have no place in a child's thoughts – even in our imperfect world.


You can change that on Tuesday, October 19

            Your gift is matched, dollar for dollar!

            Childhood security is our mission. $225,000 is our goal.
