Every child deserves a champion.

We have created a framework that brings communities together with a common purpose – to give every child a chance at success.

Creating Connections For Success

 1 in 7 children in the United States lives in poverty. That’s nearly 7 million children in this country who are struggling to have their basic needs met. 7 million children who are simply trying to survive. Although the national statistics may seem insurmountable, the solution to overcoming the obstacles created by poverty exists within each of our local communities. This is where Bright Futures can help. We shift the focus from national to local.

We are a non-profit organization that brings together faith-based organizations, human services agencies, and businesses in partnership with families and schools for a shared purpose: to quickly meet basic needs and create new opportunities for our children and youth so they can succeed in school and beyond.

Let’s work together to use every available resource of time, talent, and treasure in each of our communities to ensure that our children do more than just survive. Let’s help them thrive.

Guiding Children Toward

‘An empty stomach has no ears’ is an African phrase referring to a hungry child not being able to
concentrate on anything else, except the desire to get their basic needs met.

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs represents a continuum of those needs that must be met in order for a
person to self-actualize. At Bright Futures USA we use Maslow’s commonly accepted theory as the basis
for creating integrated systems of support to help children achieve their full potential.
