Welcome to Keri's Kids
Keris’ Kids nonprofit brings empowering and comforting books to foster children and children at-risk or suffering from abuse.
Keri’s Kids collaborates with children’s book author, Keri Vellis and distributes her life-changing and healing books to children in need.
As a mom to six, (three adopted through foster care ) and foster parent for children from painful and traumatic beginnings and backgrounds, Keri Vellis understands the challenges and circumstances that may arise when kids are displaced. After writing two self-published books offering comfort and safety for such children, Keri wanted to find a way to be sure they received the books. Her goal is to assure the kids feel safe and loved while going through the often uncomfortable transition to a new home.

Foster care children often don’t have the words to communicate their traumatic experiences. Our books help give them a voice and lets them know that they are not alone.
“It takes courage for a child to tell their story. There is little written for children on these subjects, and we all thank you for your heartfelt and important contribution."
