About Children FED
Children FED was created in 2016 to support the needs of individuals and families seeking resources for adoption. Over the course of the next few years, we realized the greater need of supporting and equipping individuals, families, and organizations on the front lines of caring for at-risk children. We wanted to create a means to provide educational and financial resources to meet the various needs across the world. We have been excited to partner with families, schools, and other organizations to positively impact the lives of caregivers and children from every walk of life.
About the Bridges Program
The Bridges Program was created in 2018 to support the original mission of Children FED. In noticing the needs of organizations across the world who work to support at risk children, as well as their caregivers, the members of Children FED met together to create a program that would allow the bridging of the gap between resources and education to those in the field. Children FED established a committee of individuals dedicated to building relationships to assess the structures and programs of organizations throughout the world. In establishing these relationships, we can be more effective in meeting the genuine needs of those working hard for children and caregivers.
The Bridges Program exists to build relationships, educate and equip for the betterment of children in need.
The Bridges Program desires to meet the needs of orphaned and at risk children by establishing relationship with those who are responsible for their care. We wish to partner with organizations that promote and facilitate the education, protection, and enrichment of children’s lives. Our goal is that caregivers and larger organizations would be educationally and financially equipped to provide the best care for children in difficult circumstances.
We recognize that every organization is unique. There are specific ways that an organization may care for children whether it be a school, a children’s home, or providing food during various hours of the day. There is no one perfect program or means to provide for at risk children. As we make relationships the priority, each organization will come with its unique set of challenges and cultural conditions. Our committee seeks to create a means to meet the current conditions by helping think through and implement strategies that support organizations for the long haul. The goal is to facilitate practical ways for the organization to one day be self-sustaining or equipped to meet the needs of any child that may come their way.
