Kids to Love is a 501(c)(3) approved Foundation. Since incorporation in 2004, the Kids to Love Foundation has been able to reach over 275,000 foster children, rescuing them and meeting their needs.
Our first commitment is to find forever families for foster children, and we are working to create those lifelong bonds by recruiting adoptive parents. Every week our founder and CEO, Lee Marshall, a former foster and adoptive child herself, shares with the Tennessee Valley stories of children waiting to be adopted. Out of 350 children featured in the weekly Kids to Love segment, 300 of them have found forever families.
The reality is that many of these children will not find a family, but that does not mean they have failed. Kids to Love helps them succeed through four educational programs, including career opportunities. Our simplest pledge is a backpack filled with school supplies. Each summer, we equip more than 5,600 foster children in Alabama and Tennessee for their new school year. In the spring, we celebrate with graduating high school seniors by awarding college scholarships so their career dreams can become reality. Since 2005, the Kids to Love Foundation has awarded 745 scholarships. In 2016, we launched KTECH, offering Mechatronics/Advanced Manufacturing training to young adults living in foster care along with residents of the Huntsville/Madison County area. Our KTECH curriculum now offers soldering, robotics, and VR training. Students enrolled in KTECH also participate in our LifeLab, which develops and promotes life skills. In 2020, KTECH expanded its workforce training footprint to train workers at one of north Alabama’s leading automotive manufacturers, Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Alabama, INC.
