Sometimes, all it takes to change a life is enough change for the bus.
How do you hold it together when you’re in foster care and you really miss your family, but they can’t visit because they have no way to get to you, not even bus fare?
How can you do well in school when you need a computer for class, but your parents can’t afford one?
How can you keep your furniture and children's belongings safe while you go into a homeless shelter for a few months?
When our neediest children and parents find themselves in the juvenile court system, they're often without any resources. Finding the support and skills to overcome homelessness, trauma or psychological challenges can seem next to impossible.
That’s where One Can Help steps in.
We work with court-appointed attorneys and social workers to provide clients at risk with essential resources when no other aid is available, to help them break the cycle of deprivation and hopelessness.
Since 2006, we’ve helped more than 5,000 parents and children. With your support, we can help those in crisis stay connected with their families, succeed in school, get job training, overcome substance abuse, pay for child care and more—so they can begin to rebuild their lives. Many former clients not only make significant strides toward becoming responsible adults and citizens, but are also inspired by the help they received to give back to others who struggle as they once did.
You can help these kids and families make their way out of the system and onto a better path. 95% of contributions go to those in need.
