About Us

Our mission is to cultivate educational experiences for children and families living in low-income communities through Nutritional, Literacy and Motivational programs.

“Growing up with one parent in prison and the other addicted to drugs, I indulged myself in reading, but many times children engage in mischievous behavior because that is the only option available.

Fortunate Kids is founded on the belief that every child has the potential to learn and become something greater than they could ever imagine.”
