The "Endicott Kids" Page
Despite the enormous wealth in Western countries, too many of our children still grow up without adequate food, health care, education, or the simple guarantee of a safe bed to sleep in at night. Physical, psychological and sexual violence against children happens behind closed doors in all neighborhoods, all kinds of families, rich and poor alike. Kids need our help to open the gates to a healthy, humane, creative adult life.
At The Endicott Sudio, we've long been active on behalf of abused, homeless, and at-risk kids -- not only by supporting mythic art that addresses these issues, but also by financially supporting children's organizations through money raised by book sales, print sales, ticket sales to Endicott-sponsored events, and donations from JoMA readers.
Our primary "Endicott Kids" charity is Casa de los Niños in Tucson, Arizona: a shelter for abandoned, runaway, abused, and neglected children of all ages, races, and backgrounds, from tiny babies to teenagers. The Casa also provides health care aid and counseling for troubled families, and sponsor child abuse prevention outreach programs in the Tucson community.
In addition to the Casa, we've donated Endicott-raised funds to other organizations and projects over the years, ranging from RAINN and The ChildTrauma Academy to arts & cultural programs for Native American children in Tucson.
