Southeast Florida

New shoes mean a new identity for kids experiencing homelessness.

Child homelessness is here.

18,992 kids in Southeast Florida are experiencing homelessness; but why give shoes to kids without homes?
While many organizations are focused on the critical needs of food and shelter, school officials tell us shoes are essential for students to succeed in school.
A good pair of shoes can change a child’s future.
Kids who receive new shoes have more confidence, attend school more regularly, and are more physically active.

I am so enthusiastic to be the founding sponsor to support brand new athletic shoes to our deserving Broward County students. These properly fitting shoes will promote physical activity, self-esteem, and happiness.

RITA CASE, Rick Case Automotive Group

Much like new clothes, brand-new footwear not only makes children and youth feel great (especially those in need), but also levels the playing field quite literally. Receiving new sneakers, tennis shoes, and socks for students experiencing homelessness in Broward County is a game changer. Parents/caregivers have one less thing to worry about! Thank you, 4EveryKid initiative, for understanding how important new shoes are to those who need them most!
