Child`s Play

Dedicated to helping develop healthy bodies and healthy minds of marginalized boys and girls (ages 3-18)

Our Mission

To provide at-risk and marginalized boys and girls (ages 3-18) access to much-needed sports programs, academic services, financial literacy, nutritional guidance, money management, higher education, and transportation.   

The Challenge

Youth ages 6-18 from low-income homes quit sports because of the financial costs at six times the rate of kids from high-income homes, according to a national survey of parents by the Aspen Institute’s Project Play initiative and Utah State University’s Families in Sport Lab. 

The average child spends less than three years playing a sport and quits by age 11 


We provide our youth with all the resources needed to thrive to become contributing citizens for the future of our community

Our Solution

Our foundation focuses on providing financial assistance and equipment to both traditional and nontraditional sports (i.e., football, soccer, basketball, baseball, chess, lacrosse, swimming, gymnastics, dance, and cheer), as well as mentoring services, conflict resolution, leadership development, financial literacy, and higher education. 

Our efforts will help to cohesively develop healthy bodies and healthy minds of area youth, readying them to become physically, mentally, socially, academically, and financially competitive in today’s world.
