|任务||To provide the missing resources at-risk and foster children need to improve their lives and build better futures.|
More than 80% of the children and families in the juvenile court system live in poverty.
One Can Help was created by juvenile court appointed attorneys so that our neediest children and families can have the same opportunities as others to improve their lives and reach higher.
Our mission is to step in and pay for the critical resources that make positive steps possible when these urgently needed supports are not otherwise obtainable.
We do this in an innovative, efficient and effective manner. We collaborate directly with the juvenile court appointed attorneys and social workers who know what their client needs and work with us to acquire the assistance needed.
We expand each year because there is such a great need for resources in this population. We have already helped more than 3,500 children and families in our 11 years of existence in a very low cost and scaleable way.
And we can usually provide this assistance in as little as 1-3 days!
One Size Does Not Fit All
It is great that other organizations provide warm coats, food or shelter to the needy at large. The help we provide however, is far more individualized and is geared to the specific needs of each child who needs help.
Court Problems and Social Problems Are Often Entwined
Ideally we all have family and friends to rely on when we need help and encouragement. Unfortunately there are many people who come from backgrounds where no reliable support networks exist at all and the state has insufficient funds to help them escape the cycle of poverty.
By helping people finally get the actual resources they need, we not only help children and families in need but we also help the juvenile court system be more efficient and effective, saving tax dollars and creating healthier communities for all.
Why Are These Children & Families Court-Involved?
One Can Help focuses on the following types of situations:
- Foster children
- Children living in poverty
- Parents or children with disabilities
