Because urgent needs can't wait.
Caring for Kids, Inc. is a registered non-profit organization under section 501(c)3, dedicated to supporting children in the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County who have urgent, unmet needs due to abuse, neglect, or being in an at-risk situation.
By collaborating closely with the St. Louis City and County Family Courts and other referring agencies, we address the immediate needs of these children, often within the crucial first 72 hours of request. Through our concerted efforts, we strive to bridge the gaps and ensure that these children receive the necessary support and resources they require to thrive in a safe, stable, and nurturing environment.
At Caring for Kids, Inc., we understand the significance of providing them with basic essentials, such as beds, bedding, clothing, and school supplies. We firmly believe that no child should have to endure the hardships of not having these essential items.
We rely on compassionate individuals like you to make this possible.
Your support and contributions play a crucial role in our mission to create a positive impact on the lives of these vulnerable children. Together, we can make a difference and provide them with the care and opportunities they deserve.

TOM SHAW FREEDOM WALK FOR CHARITIES
WHEN: October 15, 2023
WHAT: Tom Shaw Freedom Walk
WHERE: Good News Brewery – Defiance, MO
While serving as Administrative Judge of the St. Louis County Family Court, Susan Block witnessed many children in her courtroom with basic, urgent needs that went unmet by the various existing legal and child welfare organizations simply because the resources were not available or too cumbersome to obtain. These children, some with backgrounds of abuse or neglect, come from families experiencing significant financial or emotional difficulties. Their needs range from very basic, such as bus passes or school supplies, to more substantial – eyeglasses or tutoring. Judge Block and other child advocates were frustrated with the roadblocks and inadequacies and believed something had to be done to remedy the situation. Seeking out community leaders, she shared her vision of establishing an organization that would bring positive and immediate assistance to these children. As a result Caring For Kids (CFK) was established in August 2003.
