Kinderhilfe was founded by Danny Hudson.  Through his own life experience, he understands what it feels like to move constantly because of unpaid bills.  He created Kinderhilfe to foster stable home environments for children.



The mission of Kinderhilfe is to provide financial support for families in transition or crisis. Our dedicated members and volunteers want to strengthen our community and foster self-sufficiency by providing emergency rent, utility assistance, and other financial resources.
