Mission: Almost all of the children served by 2000 Feet come from families that face difficulties meeting the basic necessities of life. Many families have less than adequate incomes and several children live in families where one or both parents are incarcerated. As advocates for health and wellness, the Shoes4Kids program educates parents on the importance of general foot care for developing feet and how to select well-fitted shoes for their children.
Target demographics: under-served children and youth
Direct beneficiaries per year: over 400 kids get new shoes
