SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY AUG 27, 2016

Children First recently received a $10,000 grant from the Sarasota County Foundation to provide tuition assistance for preschool children from low–income families for the 2016–2017 school year. The grant will allow Children First to extend services to more local families living in poverty, so they can benefit from the organization’s infant and toddler care, early childhood education nutrition and healthcare support. Children First currently serves over 600 children ages five and under and their families each year, of which more than 90 percent live at or below the federal poverty level of $20,160 for a family of three.
