Why Focus on Schools?
One in six children is living in poverty in the United States (U.S. Census Bureau). Impoverished children often miss meals, lack adequate clothing and shelter, and attend fewer days of school – factors impacting their health, educational achievement, and future employment potential.
These challenges, coupled with decreased funding to schools, led Caring for Kids to focus upon the needs of schools in the Greater Kansas City Area and to develop a process to effectively mobilize the community.
Caring for Kids’ Four-Step Process
The Caring for Kids process helps develop mutually reinforcing activities to accomplish common goals. The unique needs of the school determine the community resources and volunteers required for each initiative.
Step 1 – Engage
Step 2 – Connect
Step 3 – Empower
