What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Parents in the USA too often lack support and have inadequate funds, information, and advocacy resources for the parents and their children. By coming together through ParentsUSA, parents will be a force in guiding and establishing public policy and laws, in helping other parents and their children, who through no fault of the children are in need, and in garnering discounts and benefits that are desired or needed. Together, parents helping other parents and their children and protecting their own families while doing so!

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Litigation and Appellate Advocacy for Parents and their Children

ParentsUSA carefully screens requests for legal assistance and, in select cases where a child has not been harmed and was not at risk of harm and where the Constitutional rights of one or both parents was infringed, ParentsUSA will provide pro bono legal assistance or will participate in an appeal as a friend of the court (amicus curiae).

ParentsUSA also provides policy positions to media and to policy makers such as legislators and, in doing so, only relies upon the U. S. Constitution as interpreted by the U. S. Supreme Court. ParentsUSA supports the Constitutional right of parents to decide for their children so long as not causing harm.

Children and youth

ParentsUSA supports other 501(c)(3) charities who help children and their parents.

Population(s) Served
Families

Students whose families meet certain financial criteria often are provided free or discounted meals at their schools. But not always AND, even if discounted, schools bill the parents many of whom simply cannot pay. That's where ParentsUSA™ steps in and covers those bills so no student is deprived of a meal or given an alternative meal and no student is embarrassed about either the otherwise outstanding bill or how the student is treated in the school cafeteria.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
