Nonprofit Overview

Mission: Kind to Kids Foundation's mission is to bring hope and happiness to children in need. We provide vital services to give children in foster care, poverty, and at risk teens the skills they need to succeed in life. We broaden their minds to the world around them, and show the children that someone cares.

Results: LifeSkills education classes consistently outperforms programs to deliver excellent results. Statistics clearly demonstrate that youth who attend the program develop critical skills needed to succeed in the world- such as decision making, goal setting, job readiness, financial management and budgeting, healthy relationships, emotional management, and self care. Pre and post statistics clearly demonstrate skill acquisition and improved self esteem. Our Give Joy event program and provided wonderful events to over 8,000 children in need. Through Kind to Kids, a child in need hears the crack of the bat at their first baseball game, watches a beautiful theater performance, and has fun happiness at their very first outdoor amusement park. We also provide supplies and comfort to children who are victims of child abuse and neglect, along with toys and gifts each holiday season. Kind to Kids makes dreams come true. We show the children that someone cares.

Kind to Kids really helps foster children. They help children who are victims of child abuse and neglect with excellent programs to help them through life. As an agency provider, I have seen first-hand the happiness they bring to the children with LifeSkills programs, fabulous events for the children, school supplies and beautiful gifts each Christmas from their holiday toy drive. God Bless You!

I first learned about Kind to Kids when U.S. Senator Chris Coons was the keynote speaker at their Hotel DuPont fundraiser. He talked about how Kind to Kids impacts the lives of children in need. It was so inspirational! A packed house and sold out event - I was in tears as I met the former foster teen who overcame many hurdles and is now attending college with a major in criminal justice. So amazing how our children can succeed when given the proper resources. Thank you Kind to Kids - you have my strong support!!

Kind to Kids is the best non-profit I've ever volunteered for!
The organization started as a family, and there is such warmth, love and compassion in everything that they do. Caroline Jones, the President of Kind to Kids, is incredible!
Kind to Kids offers LifeSkills classes for foster teens to help them become independent adults. The non-profit also has a Holiday Toy & Book Drive, and this year Barnes & Noble donated over 5,000 books to Kind to Kids!! Every fall Kind to Kids has a 'Halloween Hoopla' 5k Run/Walk and it's a great day with family & friends to raise money for a great cause. Grab your halloween costume and come join this amazing organization and their worthwhile cause!

Kind to Kids is a tremendous organization that is making a huge impact on Delaware's children in need. The passion that Caroline Jones and the Kind to Kids team shows is very inspiring! I have volunteered a number of times to help when they send foster children and children in poverty to amazing events that they could not otherwise go to. Kind to Kids helps foster children with school supplies and gives them gifts every holiday season. The annual toy and book drive is a huge event that requires lots of community support. They also hold LifeSkills classes for children in need to teach them how to make good decisions and be successful in life. Top notch organization!
