More than 1.5 million kids in the U.S. experience homelessness.
Children who experience homelessness often lack basic necessities, including a good pair of shoes.
No child should have to feel embarrassed, discouraged or left out simply because they lack something most of us take for granted.
At Soles4Souls, we’re on a mission to provide new athletic shoes to every homeless child in the U.S., so they can stay healthy and fully participate in school. Every kid deserves to feel the dignity and joy of a new pair of shoes.
For the kids we serve, shoes make all the difference.
New shoes means opportunity.
It means they get to attend that after school program they’ve been looking forward to, the choice to try out for the basketball team because they actually have shoes that fit their feet, but most of all, it means they have the freedom to just be a kid — in the classroom and on the playground.
