Kids In Crisis International, Inc. is a faith-based 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization established in the year 2000. We are dedicated to changing the lives of impoverished children around the world with the love of Jesus Christ. We consider it a joy and a privilege to demonstrate the love of God by helping children and their families to break out of illiteracy, poverty, hunger, and hopelessness.
The name Kids In Crisis originated as a result of what the founders witnessed in the late 1990s in Gypsy communities in northwest Romania. They witnessed children truly in crisis. Children are so impoverished it was not unusual to see them walking barefoot in the snow. All were illiterate and hopelessness was everywhere you looked.
This endeavor is close to the Father’s heart. Luke 18:16 reads, “But Jesus called the children to Him and said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.’ Bring the little children unto me.’” This is our call and commission to bring the Love of Jesus to children in need.
