Our Work

In a country with so much, many children are forced to go with very little.

According to the National Center for Children in Poverty, approximately 15 million children in the United States live in families with incomes below the federal poverty threshold. That means one in five children is living in poverty. It gets worse when you consider that families generally require twice the federal poverty threshold to cover basic expenses, which puts 43% of all children in the low-income category.

Poverty affects every aspect of a child’s life, from their ability to learn to social and emotional challenges, as well as their physical and mental health.

At the David & Teresa Disiere Foundation, our work is dedicated to helping children in need. Our programs focus on social and educational support, ranging from after-school programs and shelter sponsorships to educational programs for at-risk children. The foundation also funds scholarships for high-potential students who can’t afford to attend school and contributes directly to schools and universities.
