BHCU Kids Foundation

About Us

Established and chartered in 2019, the BHCU Kids Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 tax exempt organization administered by a volunteer Board of Directors.

The BHCU Kids Foundation began with a simple mission of strengthening the Delaware and Chester County community by seeking to provide programs and support for our most at-risk youth, with the full knowledge and understanding that they are our future. 

Opportunities abound to assist today’s youth with educational endeavors, employment, physical fitness programs, etc., all of which help to create capable, responsible, and healthy young adults.

How we’re helping

To combat these crises and provide hope for our children, as our first initiative the BHCU Kids Foundation has partnered with The Community’s Foundation (“TCF”) to endow the Hope for Children Fund which will provide direct services to the most vulnerable among us, abused and neglected children.
