Growing up in this day and age can be difficult, especially if you don’t have opportunities for growth and people who support you. Every child deserves to have someone who does not give up on them.
For over 200 years, The Home for Little Wanderers (The Home) has provided support and strength for children and families in at-risk situations in Massachusetts. They offer this positive impact through vital services and programs reaching over 12,000 lives every year! Their mission is to secure a healthy emotional, educational, behavioral and social development as well as safety for children and families who need it the most.
This is among the many reasons why we have partnered with the Home for Little Wanderers for your car donations for children.
Regardless of where a child is at in his or her level of need, The Home’s programs are designed to impact children and families where they are at. This “open door” format allows them to serve kids and youth from newborn up to age 22.
The key areas of service are:

The Home for Little Wanderers is truly a leader in the child welfare field. They are committed to evaluating endeavors to improve their organizational learning and management ensuring their programs are the most effective for each individual.
The most optimal growth for children is when they are in their home with their own family. When a child’s home is a safe place, services that are community-based become much more effective. With the open-door care from The Home’s support and clinical services strengthen each family where they are: home, clinic, hospital or school.
A “wraparound” method is used by The Home in all of their family and clinical support programs. This includes foster care, adoption, child and family counseling, home safety, community service agencies, safety at home and several others.
It is the continuous measuring of the impact of their work that allows The Home to provide the most effective program and support for children and families. They never give up on any child and they don’t let a child give up on themselves. You can donate a car for kids and help The Home for Little Wanderers continue to change lives for the better.
