I won't let poverty rob American kids of their hopes and dreams.

Hurricane Katrina: Looking back, 10 years later - Part 1 Ten years ago, Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast and submerged most of New Orleans. In response, World Vision opened a temporary warehouse to distribute supplies, worked with nearly 100 church and community partners, and gave more than $9 million in goods to 318,000 survivors.

A close relationship helps families in the Bronx with everyday essentials BronxWorks helps families and individuals to improve their economic and social well-being. The nonprofit organization, including its Betances Community Center, has partnered with World Vision's Greater New York field site for several years.

NY volunteers help others and themselves: 'A brother figure' to kids in need Volunteers from P.S. 721 in the Bronx serve weekly at World Vision's Greater New York warehouse, sorting donated products for distribution to community members in poverty. The students with special needs are helped as much as they help others, their teacher says.

Katherine's Cupboard: A dream being realized in West Virginia community Mission trip volunteers organized by World Vision helped create a food pantry at Laurel Point Methodist Church in Fairmont, West Virginia. The pantry was a dream of the late Katherine Richardson. The Laurel Point church community is undergoing transformation as well.

Our Impact on Poverty in America

When families need to spend too much of their limited income on housing, not enough is left to make home repairs to keep them safe, warm, and dry.

World Vision partners with corporate, individual, and other donors to obtain and distribute building materials to West Virginia families in need. Our Appalachia field site organizes hundreds of mission trip volunteers each year to help repair homes and restore hope in the community. Learn more about the impact of building materials.
