More than 95% of our budget goes to the children. No fund raising galas or fund drives. Each member contributes $5K per year, and working together we select an agency helping children to receive our grant for $1M.

The Whole Child and Everychild Foundation's Grant Screening Board

The Whole Child

The Whole Child has been selected to receive the Everychild Foundation’s 2015 grant to fund the new Everychild Family Housing Program. The new grant will help hard to place families with children who are homeless or at risk of homelessness to achieve stability and emotional well-being. The program will be based on the proven approach of Housing First, which emphasizes permanent housing (vs. short term shelter solutions) coupled with intensive support services.
