What We’re Doing

More than 45 years ago, Jack and Ruth Eckerd founded Eckerd Kids as a way to help 25 children and their families get a second chance. Since that pioneering day back in 1968, Eckerd Kids has helped nearly 200,000 families get the second chance that each of them deserves.

Eckerd Kids is committed to not only providing the solutions that help struggling families thrive, but also to sharing these solutions with others. Also, we believe that both providers and agencies are at their strongest when they are working together, rather than apart, on ways to improve long-term youth outcomes.
