Our House Inc. is pleased to announce that we have been selected as official partners of Payless Give™ Shoes 4 Kids, an annual giving program from Payless ShoeSource. We are among 750 charitable agencies representing all 50 states in the United Stated, as well as Canada, Puerto Rico and 11 Latin American Countries. Our House will be taking the children from selected classes to Payless Shoes stores in the area to receive new shoes.
Our House mission is to help homeless families overcome homelessness by providing year-round, high-quality childcare through a nationally-accredited Early Childhood Education program and by providing parents with the comprehensive support services and career development opportunities they need to achieve housing and financial stability. This is the sixth year of the Payless Gives™ Shoes 4 Kinds program. Although studies show that properly fitting shoes are important for children’s health and development, a striking number of children don’t own a shoe that fits. We are working to remedy that here at Our House.
By helping families who struggle to provide their children with basic essentials on a daily basis, Our House, in partnering with the Payless Gives™ Shoes 4 Kids program, hopes to relieve some of the stress parents feel during the school year and bring joy to as many children as possible.
