Who We Are

World Vision

World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. We serve all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.

Founded in 1950, World Vision is known for a global commitment to community development, disaster response, and child well-being. Since 1981, World Vision has also served children and youth living in poverty in the U.S.

Our Work in the U.S.

Why We Do It

World Vision is driven by the belief that every child deserves to live life to its fullest potential. Children who are educated, healthy, and cared for have a greater opportunity to succeed and to improve their communities.

Motivated by our Christian faith, we serve alongside the oppressed and those living in poverty as a demonstration of God's unconditional love for all people.
