WHO ARE WE?

Promise the Children is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization advocating for enough funding to support free, quality universal pre-k for each child in the U.S., as well as access to health care and adequate nutrition.

This is important work. Many parents in the U.S. are working 40 to 60 hours a week on low or minimum wages and must pay the rent. Most of them cannot afford adequate food, preschool, or health care for their young children, who are at risk of neglect, abuse, disabling hunger and chronic illness in unlicensed child care situations.

Promise the Children works to assure adequate funding of programs that support the fundamental needs of preschool children under the age of 5. The best known of these are Head Start, Food Stamps, and Medicaid. With your help, we can end child hunger, provide universal pre-K education, and assure that all young Americans have health insurance.

The future of our democracy and our society depends upon taking care of our most vulnerable citizens: our children.

Thank you for visiting. We hope you’ll join us in working towards a better future for all our nation’s children.
