Everychild is pleased to announce its 2019 finalists:
Everychild Deserves the Basics
Baby2Baby is a nationally recognized non-profit organization that provides children living in poverty with diapers, clothing and basic necessities that every child deserves. Baby2Baby is requesting funding for a 2-year program expansion and capital project to implement a practical distribution method that will enable the organization to reach areas that are currently underserved and those that have little or no access due to geographic obstacles and program partner limitations. Through the deployment of Baby2Baby On-the-Go vehicles, distributions can be held wherever community needs dictate resulting in flexibility and convenience. The Everychild Deserves the Basics initiative will serve approximately 35,000 additional children over this time period. By providing diapers and other essentials, Baby2Baby eliminates a key barrier to social and economic equality.
Homeboy Industries Youth Re-entry Center
Homeboy Industries (HBI) has evolved into the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation and re-entry program in the world. HBI is requesting funding for a 3-year program expansion and capital project to end the cycle of violence by reaching youth earlier in order to prevent long-term incarceration. The Homeboy Industries Youth Re-Entry Center will support high risk, gang involved youth and young adults 14-21, who are on probation and live in poverty. The grant will allow HBI to purchase the building they are currently using as their school and to expand services by partnering with Learning Works Charter and apply their principles in a way that other schools cannot. Annually, HBI will serve over 70 trainees employed at HBI in their new 12-month program, 100 students and an additional 70 community clients not in the program. Thirty years of rehabilitating gang members has taught HBI that the way to end the cycle of violence is to reach youth earlier in order to prevent long-term incarceration.
