To help continue the commitment to providing outstanding programming, Kids In Distress of Broward and Palm Beach Counties (KID) received a generous grant from The Salah Foundation. The funds will support the KID Preschool Early Education Opportunity with tuition assistance for 80 children.
“The grant generously provides direct support to children who need that little extra help in the classroom,” said Mark Dhooge, KID CEO. “We know that our kids will be heading to Kindergarten better prepared for the challenges ahead because of the learning they will receive, and our hope is that KID Preschool PLUS will be able to serve more children than last year due to this grant. KID is humbled by the support the Salah Foundation is giving our children, and we look forward to building a strong relationship with them.”
Tuition assistance gives children access to a quality early childhood education who otherwise would not have the tools to thrive academically. Through the Salah Foundation grant, 80 children will receive education at KID Preschool Plus, a nationally accredited and gold seal preschool program which produces outstanding academic outcomes proven to prepare at-risk children for success in Kindergarten.
The Salah Foundation is a private foundation that supports non-profit organizations in the United States that strengthen families and communities and advances individuals to become productive and responsible citizens. There is a special interest in education, medical research, community development, and self-sufficiency programs aimed at the economically disadvantaged, the young, the elderly and the disabled.
