For Every Little Handprint was founded with a singular goal: alleviating the effects of childhood poverty in Western New York and beyond. While it’s simple to say that in a single sentence, our approach is multifaceted. We aim to help children and families at home, in school and in the community.
Our four pillars are Literacy, School Supplies, Creativity and Mentorship. Through our programs, we give kids and teens access to great books and the tools they need to succeed in school. We also help connect them with role models who serve as guides and mentors, and provide programming that helps young people recognize and grow the creativity that is so often lost during adolescence — especially when you’re grappling with a challenge as complex as poverty.
I am extremely grateful for this program! Communication was spot on and supply pick up was easy and quick! As a single mom, working paycheck to paycheck, this was an extreme relief to have a program like this! I am forever grateful for the generosity and time put forth to ensure my child had their school supplies, the added financial expense of supplies and uniforms/clothes can be very stressful for parents (let alone single parents). I hope this program sticks around for a while and grows in numbers so more kids can be afforded this opportunity. Thank you from the bottom of my heart For Every Little Handprints School Supply Program! My daughters smile as she walks into school with her “special” backpack every day is one of the best feelings!!!
