Shoes That Fit tackles one of the most visible signs of poverty in America by giving children in need new athletic shoes to attend school with dignity and joy, prepared to learn, play, and thrive.


A new pair of shoes can be a life-changing event for a child. School attendance, self-esteem and behavior improve.  Physical activity increases. Smiles return. All from an often over-looked item—a good pair of shoes.

Our vision is that, one day, every child in America who needs new shoes gets new shoes, allowing all children the opportunity to reach their highest potential.
