Scholarships For Children Of
Injured Workers

When a worker is injured on the job, it doesn’t just affect them. It impacts the entire family. We support the kids.

Our Mission

Kids’ Chance of Delaware is a member of Kids’ Chance of America, a national non-profit organization that was created for the purpose of supporting and providing educational opportunities and scholarships for the children of workers who were fatally or catastrophically injured on the job. Through fundraising efforts, Kids’ Chance provides financial support for these children to pursue education and fulfill their dreams.
