Over the years, thousands of children have taken advantage of the opportunities Every Child, Inc has provided, changing the course of their lives forever. Every Child, Inc has taken the initiative to reach into the next generation of children … encouraging, mentoring, and providing hope to the young adults of tomorrow.


About Us

Every Child, Inc was started in 1999 when Judy Alexander began her journey to help the disadvantaged children in Sarasota. Judy felt that if she could encourage community leaders, businessmen, local residents and volunteers on the struggles and needs of the local children in need, then their lives would improve systematically.


What We Do

Every Child, Inc. was started 18 years ago in response to a need in the community. Children were starting school without the necessary supplies, thereby hampering their ability to succeed. The first year Every Child, Inc. distributed a new backpack filled with school supplies for every child living in the Sarasota Housing projects. Since that time, thousands of backpacks have been handed out, with the hopes that these children will do better in school. For 18 years, Every Child, Inc. has given out thousands of new books to children to keep, with the hopes of encouraging them to read. Every Child, Inc. has been concerned about child hunger, distributing bags of groceries to families for the weekend. Every Child, Inc. has worked with many local agencies to help make sure that children get what they need to succeed in school and become healthy, responsible adults.



We want to thank you for your generous contribution in support of Sarasota’s children in need. Every Child, Inc. believes that relationships are key to solving problems. By connecting you to these children, we will all directly impact their lives. Many of us are not aware of these children’s situations and therefore unaware of the opportunity to help. Only when we collectively recognize the problem can we work as a community to engage solutions. We serve with compassion and conviction while maintaining absolute financial and moral integrity.



Are you interested in volunteering? Use your gifts and talents in the service of our children in need. There is one reason to volunteer your service to our team; to help children who would otherwise have no access to the resources we provide. Every Child, Inc. is a humanitarian organization focused on improving the quality of life for children, their families and our community regardless of circumstance, status or religion. Our volunteers embrace and cherish the life changing impact that comes from helping children and serving others.
