The Yob Family Foundation's mission at its core, is to fill in the gaps, to take on the causes that seem to be left behind and provide resources for children where they are needed most.
As Americans, we maintain that we value children as the most important and precious elements of our lives. Yet, more than 670,000 children are victims of abuse annually, and our child poverty rate is at 25 percent, ranking as the second highest in the world.
Moreover, the governmental and nongovernmental agencies whose mission it is to be the safety net for these children are constantly in a pitched battle against the rising tide of these problems and a landscape of shrinking resources. Child advocacy groups are among the least funded not-for-profit charities, while the problems facing children in the United States today begin to look more and more like those faced by children in the Third World.
We cannot imagine a crisis that represents as complete a departure from our American values than the dual dilemma posed by our rates of child abuse and child poverty. We are failing roughly one quarter of the next generation, and the prognosis for the future is not optimistic.
The Yob Family Foundation’s (TYFF) mission, at its core, is to fill in the gaps, to take on the causes that seem to be left behind and provide resources for children where they are needed the most. Protecting children from harm and ensuring they are well fed and healthy are the most basic values we share as a society, so it is in this spirit that TYFF asks for your help.
Join us in our mission so we have the best chance possible to make a difference and change the future for a generation of children who by all accounts, appear to be overlooked.
