Who we are
Thank you for taking a moment to get to know who we are at Washington Children’s Support. Washington Children’s Support was founded by Mike Johnson and his wife Kym. Together they brought to life a vision that Mike held close to his heart for many years. For as long as he can remember, Mike’s mom worked for school districts in the area, helping kids with behavioral issues. There was one constant in his Mom’s stories, the need of the kids.
This need was echoed on his son’s first day of kindergarten. Kids attending the same school as his son, coming to school hungry on the first day. Coming to school in old, dirty clothing…..on the first day. With advice from his mentor, Mike and Kym decided now was the time. No longer would they sit back and watch helplessly as the kids continued to go without.
So, through a sea of red tape and paperwork, Washington Children’s Support was founded. With a grass roots approach to local kids in need, they are committed to making a difference. Through food drives, clothing drives, and soon to be monetary donations Washington Children’s Support will be impacting the local community for many years to come.
As Mike says, “If we can change the hopes and life of one child, it will all be worth it”.
