About Kid in
Kid in the Corner is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting mental health awareness and supporting those struggling with mental illness. Our mission is to change the story for the next kid in the corner, whomever that may be, by providing access to resources, promoting kindness, and fostering a supportive community.
Our educational program, known as our Penny Pledge program, is offered to students 4-12 to help shatter the stigma around mental health and bring hope to those in need. By shining a light on mental illness and encouraging open conversation, we believe that we can make a positive impact in the lives of those who may feel isolated or ignored.
Join us in our mission to #ShatterTheStigma and create a brighter future for all.
Kid in the Corner is a nonprofit organization that was started by Zachary Sumner’s family and friends shortly after he died by suicide. At Kid in the Corner, we believe that through education, kindness and community connection, we can help change the story for the next kid in the corner.
