Our History

Least of These began to come together in the fall of 2012 when Susanna Kavanaugh and Michelle Buchanan united to be a voice for one child in foster care.

They realized shortly thereafter that God had brought them together not for one child, but for many. These women both have a passion and a heart for the hurting children and families involved in foster care. It is their belief that God calls us to help "The Least of These" (Matthew 25:40).

In March 2013, The Least of These Gaston Inc. was founded! In May 0f 2015 we began doing business as Least of These Carolinas in an effort to extend our reach into other counties.

Michelle and Susanna tell their story in this short video:
