Join Us In Changing a Child's Future

How Your Donations Help  The Coalition serves nearly 9,000 children a day in Pasco and Hernando counties.  Additionally, the Coalition supports families and caregivers with child care assistance funding so that nearly 4,800 parents, foster parents, and grandparents can continue to work or attend school. 
 

Support Early Literacy – Your donation also helps us provide books to young children in need and support book giveaways at our community outreach events in Pasco and Hernando Counties.

  • Books create warm emotional bonds between adults and kids when they read books together.
  • Books are interactive; they demand that kids think.
  • Books develop and nourish kids’ imaginations, expanding their worlds.
  • Books help children and adults to open up, to move beyond self-absorption and connect to other people
  • Books help us to understand ourselves, to find out who we are.    (Source:  National Children's Book ans Literacy Alliance)
 
 
 

 

 

Ways to Donate

Sponsor a Child – Children who participate in Early Childhood Development programs, when compared with children who do not, are more likely to enroll in school, plan their families, become productive adults, and educate their own children.  They also are less likely to repeat a grade, drop out of school, or engage in criminal activities.
 
Early childhood, the period between birth and age 8, is the foundation of a child’s future health, growth, development and achievement at school and throughout life. Experiences during these early years shape brain architecture and have a direct impact on social, emotional and learning skills. This investment prospectus focuses on the first five years of a child’s life — an important window of opportunity in a child’s development.
 
Why are early learning opportunities so important? During the first few years of life, approximately 700 neural connections are formed every second. These connections are dictated by the interplay of a baby’s genetics, environment and experiences, especially the child’s interactions with adults. These are the connections that build brain architecture — the foundation upon which all later learning and behavior depend.  Children who are not exposed to early learning opportunities before age 5 are left at a distinct disadvantage.
