WHO ARE WE?
Promise the Children is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. We believe that the future of our democratic society depends on child advocates working together in support of the healthy development of our most vulnerable citizens, our children.
Low-earning families depend on safety net subsidies to provide childcare for their children and remain in housing. To this end, we post action alerts on our website, on our Facebook page and on Twitter regarding issues that affect the health, nutrition and care of our children. In addition we send you action alerts regularly when you sign up for our emails.
Promise the Children provides information on local, state and national issues that affect children. To care for their children, many working parents whose employers do not provide health insurance must depend on Medicaid insurance that is provided in the Affordable Health Care Act. To avoid hunger and provide food at home, they need the food stamp program (SNAP) and they depend on school meals to feed their children. Working together with families, communities, and other child advocate organizations we want to help provide access to quality childcare and early education for all children from the time they are born so that all children have equal opportunities to be prepared for kindergarten and succeed in school.
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.
