ForKids has experienced explosive growth since the recession in 2008, as more families living in poverty have fallen into homelessness. We have risen to the challenge of this increased need in strategic and creative ways, growing capacity and services when many non-profits were closing their doors. Community and government support has grown to support ForKids’s total FY17 operating budget of $6.7M. We have been able to increase both the breadth and depth of our services across the region without any additions to debt. ForKids is a lean organization, well-equipped for the road ahead with a results-oriented model, skilled partners, a strong Board, and a talented staff.
