FOCUS


Worthdays focuses on these three main areas:

Normalcy

That these children consistently have opportunities to feel successful and ‘normal’ through hobbies and activities that they enjoy.

Worthdays is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Richmond, Virginia whose mission is to ensure that children and youth impacted by the foster care system know that they are important, worthy and celebrated.

 

Through the excitement of celebrating children on the important days of their lives, we hope to engage our community in a way that will raise awareness and increase positive outcomes for the foster care system! At the end of the day, this system is broken. There is much work to be done to improve the outcomes for the children faced with this system. In the meantime, we believe that one of the most universal needs of all children and youth is to feel wanted and worthy. And we believe that this is an issue we can tackle.

Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think there is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty, than the person who has nothing to eat.

Remind him over and over that he’s worth it, because all day he’s reminding himself that he’s not.
