Success Awards

Eckerd Kids knows that a child needs much more than immediate care. That’s why we provide Success Awards like scholarship funds for tutoring assistance, GED® classes, a laptop for college, even a business suit for job interviews and other support services to help youth succeed with their future educational and vocational goals.

Help a Child Succeed

Friends of the Children

This program provides highly trained, salaried professionals as mentors to the most vulnerable children, from kindergarten all the way through high school graduation. These Friends remain in the child’s life for twelve and a half years – no matter what. This program is the first Friends of the Children program to focus on children in foster care. Join us in creating and sustaining this life changing program!
