You Can Help

Children who are at risk often need more help than DSS, their foster parents or families can provide which is why WAVES 4 K.I.D.S. exists.  It's difficult for most of us to imagine what life is like for these children.  The generosity from our community allows us to provide additional resources that we hope will help these children move forward to become healthy happy adults.

Your gift today can help change the future for K.I.D.S.
