Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

More than 50% of our kids are between the ages 6 to 11. It is recommended (APMA.org) that shoes should be replaced for kids in this age range approximately every five months. Many families cannot afford to follow the suggested guide which is why we have several teachers who see the kids on a day-to-day basis refer them to our program. A good pair of properly fitted and supportive shoes help to avoid foot, leg and back pain. As children get older their shoes start wearing down faster so there are benefits to having more than one pair of shoes. Also having more than one pair of shoes will extend the life of both pairs of shoes (Bloomfieldfootcare.com)

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The overall short-term goal is to reach at least 500 unrepeated kids annually. We want to sustain a large inventory of shoes so that there is a great selection of styles and sizes.

In 2019 we increased the limit of kids per household from three up to five in the household. Now that we are licensed and incorporated in the state of Florida we have the opportunity to reach more new families and cultivate collaborations.

The United Way 211 Hotline of central Florida is another avenue to reach more families. During the back-to-school periods and holidays we will set up campaigns for shoe drives and as funding permits purchase shoes for the online store. The best measure of success is word of mouth. The more families we serve, the more growth in outreach.

Since we have a direct simple mission, we focus on how many kids have received new shoes. Since our inception we have provided almost 8,000 kids in the U. S. with new shoes and have distributed over 500 pairs to an orphanage in Romania.
