WHO ARE WE?
Promise the Children is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. We believe that the future of our democratic society depends on the education and healthy development of our most vulnerable citizens – our nation’s children. To this end we reach out to volunteers who will work together and advocate for programs that support our children and their families.
We offer information and action alerts about government funding for safety net subsidies that our Low-earning families depend on. Often subsidy programs are funded by the federal government in partnership with state governments. These programs help to pay for child care, early education, food, health care, and more. We also offer information on charities such as food pantries and other meal programs, and on opportunities to volunteer with pre-school and school aged children. Information and action alerts are posted on our website, our blog, our Facebook page, and on Twitter. In addition we email timely information and action alerts to those who sign up on our web site.
At the moment President Obama’s Affordable Health Care Act (AHCA) is at risk of repeal. Our conservative republican government wants to cut the taxes of wealthy people, and let each state pay most of the cost of our national health care system. Our states cannot afford to pay more for health care than they are paying now. Many millions of children, parents, adults and grandparents would lose health care if AHCA is repealed. Now it is up the senate to decide on how it will revise or replace AHCA. Please call your federal senators to tell them how you want to save AHCA. When you text 520-200-2223 with your zip code as the text message, and you will get the phone numbers of your President and and senators. Here is more information.
Thank you for visiting. Please sign up to help us in this important work. In June of 2017 Promise The Children will attend the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly in New Orleans. We hope to find many like minded people there who will join us.
