Donate & Sponsor

You don’t have to be a therapist or teacher to help transform a child’s life. Anyone can do it, simply by making a donation to United Services for Children. With your help, a child who cannot communicate will learn to talk. A girl who cannot use her legs will learn to walk. A boy trapped in his own world will start making friends. Families who fear tomorrow will discover a future full of hope and possibility. The life-changing services we provide are only possible thanks to people like you. So please, donate today. Help children of all abilities reach their full potential.
