  2. Teenage Parent Vouchers for Child Care – A donation can help provide quality child care for the child of a teenage parent working to complete their high school diploma.

  3. Countdown to Kindergarten – A donation can help provide a summer of home visits to a rising kindergartener to help them and their family transition to Kindergarten prepared and excited to start school with the engaged support of their parents.

  4. Community Based Literacy Initiative – Donations for this program will be used for purchasing age appropriate books for community organizations that are serving at risk preschool children in an effort to provide additional literacy based activities to close the literacy gap typically associated with at risk children.

  5. Child Care Professional Training – Donations to this program will be used to provide high quality training and conferences for child care professionals in York County.

You are welcome to designate your donation to one of the key areas or to leave undesignated and we will allocate your donation to an area where it is most needed.
