We are extremely excited to present to you our 2016 Audited Financials.  We consider it a great joy to be able to reach out and provide humanitarian aid to millions of needy children and their families here in the United States and around the world.  We distributed more than $41 million dollars worth of relief supplies in 2016.

Our mission is to demonstrate God’s love by alleviating suffering here in the United States and around the world.  At Help the Children we are committed to serving a wide variety of people in diverse cultural and economic setting, who suffer emotional, spiritual and physical needs, which result from conditions beyond their personal control.  In every endeavor, Help the Children seeks to exemplify Christian compassion and benevolence while conforming to the highest standard of integrity.  

I would like to thank each person, family, church, organization, corporation and foundation that supported our programs and outreaches this past year.  Our hands-on programs were able to assist several million children and their families with food, clothing, personal care items and other necessities to help improve their quality of life.

At Help the Children we take pride in our projects as we continue to find the best solutions for helping individuals in need.  It is our goal to maximize our effectiveness to share God’s love and compassion with children in need.  We are particularly delighted in the fact that our overhead cost is only 1%, which means that 99% of every donation goes toward our programs.  Consequently, Help the Children remains one of America’s most cost effective charities.

Thank you for your faithful partnership as together we help meet the needs of the impoverished around the world.  May God bless you!
