K.I.D.S has been a "GREAT" non-profit helping New York City and many other locations! As a staff member for Lighthouse Outreach Ministries located in NY I have seen how K.I.D.S' mission has always been purpose filled and clear by helping the families and children that we reach in our community. LH identifies needs in our local community, and K.I.D.S has always been part of meeting a lot of these needs for our children-- it has become a solution, and most importantly it is always bringing results! LH is beyond thankful for all that K.I.D.S does.

Not only has it offered us answers, but as a non-profit it clearly promotes it's vision and mission, it engages others whether they are donors, or clients so that everyone works/serves for a common purpose. We admire K.I.D.S, and can't wait to see what other doors are opened in the future through them for those that are in need!

Kids In Distressed Situations, Inc. has been an essential key to the success of Lighthouse Outreach Ministries’ outreaches. K.I.D.S has enabled us to promptly reach our local community’s children by giving them a new toy during our Toys 4 Joy, toy giveaway every Christmas. Their support has also given our Barefoot Royalty outreach the privilege of providing a new pair of shoes to children in necessity, from Bobs by Skechers. Their organization is a great example of what giving and kindness is. They are always very diligent in their response and each staff member is always friendly, attentive and willing to extend their help beyond their call of duty.

Through K.I.D.S we made a connection with Carters/Oshkosh and ToysRUs. The donations of clothing and supplies have helped children and families who are experiencing extreme poverty. Because of K.I.D.S, the most needy children are able to attend childcare and school with clean, appropriate clothing. Children in foster care have access to new clothing. Children have winter clothing that keeps them warm and dry. We are just starting to get toys which will be given to children and families who can't afford to buy toys. The process for receiving the donations is simple and efficient. What a fantastic organization. Kudos to K.I.D.S and all of their partners.

Kids In Distressed Situations, Inc. has been a crucial component in the success of Lighthouse Outreach Ministries' outreaches. Their support enables us to provide a brand new toy to impoverished children in our community through our Toys 4 Joy toy give away program every Christmas. K.I.D.S. support has also enabled us to provide a pair of brand new shoes to children in serious needs through our Barefoot Royalty outreach. Their product donation is so prompt, timely and effective that allows understaffed non profits to concentrate on other important tasks. They truly make the job of reaching out to children in need a lot easier to us. The staff is always very kind, helpful and good disposition!

Kids in Distressed Situations Inc. have been a tremendous help in supporting, The Gift Of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust. Without their support, The Gift Of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust would not have been able to serve the thousands of children and teens last year with a new toy or electronic game for Christmas. So I just wanted to say thank you K.I.D.S. for supporting The Gift Of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust in its missions and goals.

Operation Homefront partners with K.I.D.S. to provide cribs, car seats, clothing, toys, high chairs and many other things to military families. Their sponsors are great, their staff is phenomenal, and they are truly committed to helping our military families who are SO deserving.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping to distribute goods to military families.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their unfailing commitment to families, especially military families.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

professional, dedicated, and hard-working.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

greatly expand the number of families it could support. K.I.D.S. is phenomenal.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
