Children experiencing homelessness and poverty face great challenges. High mobility, precarious living conditions, and inadequate health and nutrition can combine to present significant emotional, physical and academic difficulties. Yet, these children have talents and dreams just like any other kids.
Bright Blessings works through its four core service programs to combat the effects of poverty, boost self-esteem, provide care essentials and support literacy.
Giving disadvantaged children help for today and hope for tomorrow
Whether beginning life in shelters or domestic violence programs, at temporary maternity centers or in supportive housing communities, this program provides a healthy and positive start for the tiniest victims of poverty.
Our Gift of Care program provides basic essentials to thousands of homeless and impoverished children across our local communities every year. Good health and hygiene, a sense of security, and proper nutrition are all crucial factors in the physical and emotional
development of children.
In partnership with First Book Charlotte, our Gift of Literacy program distributes more than 6,000 new books each year to local children in need. Our library shelves at the Giving Village are filled with books for children of all ages. From board books and first readers to chapter series, classics and award-winning titles, we are committed to providing the wondrous gift of reading to kids who have few, if any, new books of their own.
