 Our Mission

Children. Pure & Simple.

 The DeGood Foundation develops programs for change to touch the hearts and lives of children in youth health, education, and literacy.

The DeGood Foundation was founded in July of 2017 in an effort to address issues with mental health, children's illiteracy, and care within local hospitals within the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. We truly believe that children are the future of the world and have the potential to make the world a better and brighter place. Children are the foundation of our future. We aim to support that foundation with our literacy, education, and health programs to give children the best possible chance at their education, health, and lives.

We wholeheartedly believe that if a child grows up with a book in their hands and a song in their heart, then there’s a pretty good chance that their dreams will come true! Our mission is to help children Dream More, Learn More, Care More, and Be More.

It’s simple really. All you need is a little love in your heart and a smile on your face. With those together, you can do anything.
