Making a Kid Smile


Who We Are

MAKS Corp. is a non-profit 501c3 organization located in Northwest Indiana that provides personal care and comfort items for local foster children in need.  We focus on providing backpacks with personal care items to children after removal from their homes to ensure they have what they need while they transition to a new placement.  We then provide anything from clothing to furniture to help keep them comfortable in their placements, and continue to provide for foster children while they transition to their permanent placements, whether at home or with foster parents. In the end our goal is to help the Department of Children and Family Services (DCS) ensure our foster children have what they need.


Our Mission

MAKS is dedicated to providing basic care and comfort items to help local foster children while displaced from their homes.  We envision a culture of compassion and partnership in our local communities where we can guarantee basic new items to every child in care.
