Changing the World ... One kid at a time.
No one wants to believe that it is happeningchildren robbed of their childhood through abuse, violence, addictions, hopelessness and having responsibility for themselves at an early age.
It is the tough reality, but there is a place of hope; a shelter from the dangerous storm. It is the Coalition For Kids.
Every afternoon, our buses and vans bring children from local schools to The Rock, a community center under the direction of the Coalition for Kids, Inc.
The Coalition is a non-profit organization with a mission to help children in need. Here they find a Safe Place, with professional tutors and a staff of volunteers.
C4K is not a daycare facility. After school coalition children find:
- Help with homework
- Reading and math assistance
- Music and art lessons
- Special preventive programs for violence and substance abuse
- A free snack and dinner.
Through our Coalition staff and a network of volunteer counselors, we are eyewitnesses to something wonderful…lives changed, one child at a time.
Dear "Rock" Family,
I can not express how grateful I am that my children have a fun, safe, and loving environment to come to each day. I appreciate all of your help and concern for my children — as well for myself — not only during the holidays, but everyday. I don't say this enough, but "THANK YOU!!" from the bottom of my heart. I truly feel that the Lord has blessed us by allowing us to have each of you in our lives especially as a loving and POSITIVE force. I hope that each of you have a wonderful holiday and please know that I admire and respect each of you for what you are doing in our community to make it a better, safer place for our children. Again, THANK YOU so much for everything you do, I truly appreciate your love for my children. May God bless each of you and your families.
With the utmost respect, love and appreciation,
— a parent of two Coalition children
