Welcome to Kids First!
Cultural Care Kids First Foundation, or Kids First, is a charitable foundation created to help children in need all over the world. Established by Cultural Care Au Pair, an au pair organization based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Kids First is a non-profit 501(c)3 public charity assisting organizations that provide direct services to underprivileged children. Unique to Kids First is our goal to help at-risk kids not only survive, but to thrive. For this reason, our contributions most often fund projects that will enhance a child's ability to learn a new skill, realize a dream, and to have fun.
Our mission statement
"Cultural Care Kids First Foundation, drawing on the strength of the global community of Cultural Care Au Pair, provides resources to support organizations that strive to make a lasting difference in the lives of children in need around the world."
100+% to the children
One hundred percent of all funds raised and donated go directly to organizations that provide direct care to children in need. Cultural Care Au Pair matches all donations, dollar for dollar, and covers administrative costs of the program.
10 years of helping kids
From 2003, when we started by helping a single Russian orphange outside Moscow, to 2013 as we launch a new grant program to be able to reach more children in more corners of the world, Cultural Care Kids First Foundation has made a positive impact on the lives of hundreds of children.
We invite you to join the Cultural Care family—our office and field staff around the world, training school teachers, host families and au pairs—to learn more about this amazing organization and support our Kids First efforts.
