In June 1995, more than 40 corporate leaders and individuals committed their support to make Kids Kottage a reality. Since the inception of the Kottage, they have evolved in their programming and philosophies to meet the needs of thousands of infants and children. Kids Kottage is a 24/7 shelter operation for infants and children 10 years and under that supports caregivers by relieving them from the challenges they face like trauma, homelessness, the effects of poverty, mental or physical health barriers, and/or toxic levels of stress. The Kottage helps and fills in the gaps in a caregiver's support system, caring for the infants and children while the adults are connected to the resources.
There are a lot of people in this world who need help. But there are a few more deserving of help than those under the age of ten. It’s about right now. It’s about the future. It’s about economics. It’s about human potential. It’s about doing the right thing. It’s about breaking the cycle. It’s about giving children a chance to live. It’s about the belief that every child deserves to feel SAFE. That’s why Kids Kottage exists.
