Our mission is to provide homeless youth with brand-new shoes to help them feel confident, comfortable and special.
For homeless kids, walking in worn-out shoes, hand-me-downs, or simply shoes that don’t fit, is all too common. Worn-out shoes can too easily make kids feel like they don’t fit in at school. They can injure feet and hurt self-esteem. They can make kids feel less than.
Our work has reached more than 62,000 homeless kids in every state in the country, providing more than 65,000 pairs of shoes and counting. But it goes well beyond the shoes. We are driven to leave every child with more than a pair of shoes — to leave them feeling inspired, confident and loved.
