Help fight child poverty in
the U.S.
  Not today, tomorrow or any other day...

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

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.

At Vacation Bible School in Appalachia, children know 'Jesus is always there' Nine years ago, the Vacation Bible School in Wallace, West Virginia, started with seven kids. Participating churches prayed that attendance would double. Their faithfulness in God continued to grow as attendance rose to 10, then 14, and ultimately to 47 children last year.

Partners, volunteers help Texas teachers feel loved during Appreciation Week World Vision collected gift bag items, small office supplies, and office furniture from corporate donors. Volunteers assembled gift bags for North Texas teachers. Everything was distributed during Teacher Appreciation Week to grateful educators in the Dallas area.

Serving as intern for World Vision in NY is 'not everyday job' Nestor Velez says his experience as an intern at World Vision's Greater New York field site was life-changing: "The icing on the cake is that you're not just working here for some company; you're working for all of those kids and families that are in need."

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.
