The Neediest Kids Program

The NEEDIEST KIDS PROGRAM seeks to serve the 41% of public school students in the Washington region who live in poverty by providing the basic tools they need to obtain an education they deserve. The program partners with ten (10) school systems in Maryland, the District of Columbia and Virginia. Each of our school partners has the commitment of their Superintendent or CEO to maintain staffing of the program and to value the potential benefits of early intervention.


The Neediest Kids Program helps to provide vulnerable students with the tools they need to go to school ready to learn. The Program makes these resources available to students in a manner that allows them the dignity they deserve to make their own decisions. When a principal, teacher, social worker, counselor, nurse, or other school professional identifies a student struggling in school due to a lack of basic needs and school tools, they have the resources available to respond quickly, with no red tape, to request a purchase order from The Bridge to Success Program, to help this student obtain the following goods or services:

  • New clothing, coats, shoes, and school uniforms
  • Eye examination and eye glasses
  • Food and personal care Items
  • School Supplies
  • Bedding
  • Dental and Medical Care
  • Diapers
  • and more
