Every Action Makes a Difference in These Kids’ Lives
When a worker gets injured on the job, it doesn’t just affect them — it affects their entire family, especially their kids.
That’s why our 50 Kids’ Chance state organizations provide scholarships and support to the kids of workers who have been injured on the job. We want to ensure these kids can complete their education and go on to fulfilling and gainful careers.
Since 1988, Kids’ Chance state organizations have awarded over 9,300 scholarships totaling over $33.2 million dollars.
But we know there are more kids in need of assistance.
We established Kids’ Chance Awareness Week to be a time when every member of the Kids’ Chance community can support our mission, these families, and these kids. By coming together one week each year, we concentrate our efforts, which boosts our volume.
This year, Kids’ Chance Awareness Week is November 7-11, 2022. Join our national movement for one day or for the whole week.

“I’m just so incredibly thankful for this community and grateful for everything that they’ve done for me, and just all the love and support they’ve shown me,” Brooke shared. “It’s very reassuring going through college, and when there’s struggles, [having] these people behind me.”
