40% of children attending Encompass programs live in poverty and often enter our doors with outgrown shoes and boots that limit their ability to walk, run, climb, grow, and learn because of foot pain and without sufficient clothing to ensure our Wisconsin weather. “If the Shoe Fits” was created to support the purchase of shoes, socks, boots, winter coats, and snow pants to provide our at-risk children with appropriate footwear for all seasons and cold weather clothing to keep them warm during outside play.
