We Exist So That No Child Will Go Without

"It takes a community to save a child." - David Pelzer

About Us

Kids In Distress Services, Inc. (KIDS) is a non-profit organization with tax exempt status whose sole mission is to help children and teens. We provide children and teens with necessary clothing and personal hygiene items when they are unexpectedly removed from their homes (i.e. entering foster care, entering a shelter, left homeless, home fires, as well as any other children/ teen in need.)

How You Can Help

If you want to support KIDS in helping children and youth who are in need of clothing and other necessities, please make a financial contribution to enable Kids In Distress Services to purchase non-recycled items such as sock, under clothing, and shoes. Your tax deductible gift will enable KIDS to continue operating and keep our warehouse stocked.

Effective immediately, KIDS will be closed to the public until further notice. KIDS runs on mainly volunteers, most of them being older. With that being said, we simply don’t have the numbers to operate at this time as we want to keep them safe. We apologize for any inconvenience and know that we will be constantly monitoring the situation. We will be filling orders on an emergency bases only and ask that you hold all donations until we open again. Please stay tuned to this page and our website for further details.
