ChildFund International in USA

About 22 percent of children in the United States live below the federal poverty line, and that percentage skyrockets to between 40 percent and 70 percent among minority groups living in rural communities. ChildFund works in Mississippi and Texas, where we partner with local organizations to address the specific needs of children in vulnerable situations. We recently concluded work in Oklahoma and South Dakota.

ChildFund has served children in the USA since 1952. Our programs are directed toward parent and community engagement and empowerment, with a focus on youth agency. We also recognize the potential in creating positive change for American children through restoring cultural values and traditions, as well as emphasizing literacy, education, and child protection.
