This is the flag we wave.
We stand on the front lines of child abuse. We believe all children
should have family, safety, rights, and a future.
Join us in taking a stand For The Children.
Same Heart, New Name, Bigger Impact.
We are now For The Children and here’s why.
For 30 years, volunteers, churches, businesses, local municipal partners and Royal Family KIDS staff have dedicated their time, talent and treasures to help transform the lives of vulnerable children across the US, and world.
While Royal Family KIDS has formally overseen our camps and mentoring programs, the breadth of our work has evolved far beyond these two programs. Today, our different chapters may provide anything from direct trauma intervention to advocacy, fostering, adoption, support to parents, and other crucial wraparound services.
While we acknowledge the expansion of our work across our 252 chapters, COVID-19 has profoundly increased the needs of children and families. Extreme gaps in fulfilling these needs cannot be overstated.
In order to address the systemic issues surrounding child welfare today, our organization must respond.
Consequently, as of November 2020, the Royal Family KIDS national office, was renamed For The Children. This transition sought to bring clarity to new opportunities, from providing laptops and shoes to needy children, to assisting overburdened social workers, to providing temporary shelter.
The teaching and example of Jesus in caring for “the least of these” will remain our motivation. As For The Children, we are also eager to focus on the systemic issues facing children around the globe.
