Dear Friends,

Looking back over 2021, Houston Children’s Charity had much to celebrate. After serving more than 3.5 million children in our first quarter century, we are even more committed to ensuring a world where every child has their very own bed, clothing, school supplies, transportation, health services, and joyful holidays.

Your support of our mission over those 25 years makes our work possible – every day, every week, every year – for every child we serve. In 2021, YOU helped our direct service programs touch the lives of 25,000 children, and the thousands more reached through our work with partner agencies. None of this is possible without a supportive board, generous donors, and an amazing cadre of volunteers.


We thank each of you for your efforts on behalf of the children we serve as 2021 was a year of many challenges for families in our area. But 2022 will be no different. With rising costs on everyday needs, our families will continue to look to Houston Children’s Charity to support their children. And while the year will almost definitely bring unforeseen challenges, we know YOU will be there to support our efforts and our clients. Because “Our Kids Are Everybody’s Kids.”

 “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” – Mother Theresa

With my deepest gratitude,




Laura S. Ward
