Mission Statement

To equip and empower organizations meeting our community’s critical needs.

Our Three Pillars

Human Services

Human services organizations help people find stability, including help with basic needs like food and shelter, and also guidance, counseling, and treatment that promotes self-sufficiency and happiness in people's daily lives.

Youth Development

Youth development organizations help prepare young people to meet the challenges of adolescence and adulthood and to achieve their full potential.

Health & Wellness

Organizations that focus on health could mean rehabilitative health, disease and disorder treatment, medical research, or mental health and crisis intervention.


Adopt a School Program

In November 2021, Children’s Hunger Alliance in partnership with The Champion Cares Foundation launched the pilot Adopt a School Partnership Program.
