Effectively changing our little corners of the world
The primary mission of The National Child Safety Foundation is to provide seminars nationwide on subjects that affect children and young adults the most. Seminar topics include Bullying, Internet Bullying, Identity theft, drug and alcohol use prevention, and child abduction prevention.
The second mission of The National Child Safety Foundation is to assist communities in identifying, funding and establishing needed children's educational infrastructure in their area. Educational infrastructure that the National Child Safety Foundation has assisted in building and developing includes schools, computer labs and after school programs.
During the 1990's the population of the United States grew at a rate of 13.1% from 248.7 million to 281.4 million. Housing starts rose to a rate of 31.5% over the same 10 year period with some cities reporting triple digit growth rates.
During the same period, construction of children's infrastructure rose at a rate of less than ½ of 1 percent.
As the juvenile problems of pregnancy, alcoholism, drug use and child abductions continue to proliferate nationwide, The National Child Safety Foundation has determined that there is a direct correlation between societal ills involving juveniles and the amount of available activities and infrastructure available to the children. Multiple studies have concluded that there is a direct inverse correlation, i.e. the less the infrastructure, the greater the risk of juvenile problems.
Therefore, in response to the growing juvenile problems nationwide, The National Child Safety Foundation was established in 2001 as a Non profit organization and recognized as such under Chapter 501 C (3) of the I.R.S. codes. The objective of The National Child Safety Foundation is to increase juvenile infrastructure and education nationwide. Once the needed infrastructure is identified and feasibility studies completed, The National Child Safety Foundation teams up with other local Non- profit organizations (Lions Club, Optimist Club, Kiwanis, Boy Scouts, etc.) to promote fund raising for the identified project.
