We have some BIG news!!! A matching challenge from the Delores Barr Weaver Legacy Fund at the Community Foundation for Northeast Florida matches every new donation made by individual donors through August 1st dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000.
The funds will furnish the soon-to-be renovated Creekside/Cedarwood Cottage where kids with mental and behavioral issues as well as intellectual and developmental differences like autism can receive life-changing therapeutic care.
You can help us Furnish Their Future and every dollar you give will be DOUBLED! Together we can reach the finish line!
Our Donors Are the Lifeblood to Daniel Kids Helping the Community
Daniel helps nearly 2,000 local abused, abandoned and neglected children, as well as at-risk families everyday. The critical therapeutic and supportive care we offer is at low or no cost to our clients. Yet, the demand for our services continues to grow despite yearly decreases in government funding.
In 1884 the population of Jacksonville was just 10,000, yet even within that relatively small number; there were still a multitude of children in need of help. To that end, a group of church women launched the Orphanage and Home for the Friendless in a small, rented cottage on the corner of Liberty and Ashley Street with a fund launched to open a permanent home.
No matter what your skill set or how much time you have available, we’ll help you find a volunteer position that will impact a child’s life while enriching your own. Whether you want to lend your talents to a fund-raising event, organize game days with the kids, or work one-on-one with a child as his mentor, Daniel needs and appreciates your support.
Daniel holds multiple events throughout the year to raise funds and awareness for Daniel kids. These events, which include our Hank Haynes Golf Classic, provide sponsorship opportunities that enable your company to enjoy cause-related marketing benefits and media exposure while supporting a great cause.
