Kiddie Academy® Educational Child Care, a nationally recognized provider of comprehensive educational childcare programs, announced a partnership with national nonprofit Family Promise, designed to empower families experiencing homelessness and set children up for success.
Providing an initial gift of $25,000, Kiddie Academy will work together with Family Promise to develop a program for spreading awareness about family homelessness, as well as fundraising in support of the organization’s mission.
“Family Promise shares our commitment to improve communities and build brighter futures for children,” said Greg Helwig, CEO at Kiddie Academy. Together, Kiddie Academy and Family Promise will work to empower all stakeholders—volunteers, donors, community members, businesses and government officials—to effect change across communities so families can achieve economic stability and children can access a brighter future.
As the COVID-19 pandemic persists, many families are experiencing increased risk in their housing stability. Kiddie Academy believes in developing a foundation for long term success, and Family Promise’s prevention, shelter, and stabilization model does just that for families in need by providing critical resources across every step of their journey.
“Kiddie Academy’s initial contribution to Family Promise is the foundation for a system-wide fundraising and resource model to help further the nonprofit’s efforts in solving homelessness for families across the country,” added Mike Miller, executive chairman of Kiddie Academy.
