Our Work for Children in the United States

In rural communities across the country, children from a wide range of backgrounds often struggle to access early education, nutritious food and the other resources they need to thrive.

Save the Children works with local partners throughout rural America to ensure children have a healthy, strong foundation to succeed as learners and in life. We bring decades of experience and expertise to delivering scalable solutions to the unique challenges rural children face.

Through partnerships, programs, innovation and advocacy, we provide educational support, child care and mental health resources, and so much more.

Advocate for children in the United States by joining our political advocacy arm — Save the Children Advocacy Network's —  efforts to send a message to Congress. Tell Congress: Improving the Child Tax Credit (CTC) could change children's futures. It'd help low-income families afford necessities like food and housing, benefiting more than 1 in 5 kids.
