The Champions For Children Story

Studies have repeatedly shown that loving and nurturing adult caregivers providing a safe, stable and age-appropriate environment for the children in their care is vital for the emotional and developmental foundation that children need to be successful in school and life.

Since 1996, Champions, a 501(c)(3), has been the motivating force behind a coordinated community effort to design and implement progressive programs to help at-risk children, parents and childcare providers. From professional teacher trainings  to individual interventions for at-risk children and families, Champions' provides caregivers, teachers, and families with the education, mentoring, training, and support they need to ensure that their children have every opportunity at success.

Champions for Children is a United Way of Tyler/Smith County partner agency and is focused on quality, early childhood development for all children. Champions' provides training and mentoring for adult caregivers to better understand the unique needs of young children and specialized services to children and adults to build strong families and a stronger community.

Children are our future!
