CHILD & FAMILY WELLNESS
The North Texas Community Foundation along with donors, civic leaders and other community
partners focus on improving the lives of children and families in our region through a variety of measures.
CHILD WELFARE FUNDS
Children are a vulnerable population, and sadly many kids in Texas are not safe even in their own homes. In 2014, Tarrant County had more confirmed cases of abuse and neglect than any other jurisdiction in the state. The North Texas Community Foundation’s Martin H. and Helen M. Wikierak Memorial Fund for Abused Children is the legacy of the Wikieraks, who established a permanent trust to assist abused and battered children in Tarrant County. The Don and Barbara Kirk Endowment Fund supports nonprofit organizations that serve the needs of at-risk children in the greater Tarrant County area. The goal of the Kirk Endowment Fund is to empower at-risk children to overcome the difficulty and challenges they face to become successful members of society.
