about

Mission: No Child Forgotten fosters hope, dignity, and new beginnings by providing new belongings to children who were rescued from abuse, neglect, abandonment, and homelessness. With the help of our partners, we fulfill the immediate unmet physical and emotional needs of rescued children, and help support the agencies caring for them.

Vision: A world where all children’s physical and emotional needs are met.

Kare Kit Program: Our Kare Kits provide children with a duffel bag full of items essential for their well-being such as clothing, toiletries, blankets, toys, books, and more.

 

Service Area: Fort Bend, Brazoria, and Galveston Counties; and select surrounding areas
