We’re excited to announce our recent grant awarded from Capital One in the amount of $25,000 for our Ways to Work, Richmond program.
Ways to Work is an Economic Empowerment program that provides low-interest car loans to working families. It is designed to help participants move toward financial stability, increased self-sufficiency and advanced career opportunities. In addition to loan assistance, participants receive financial education and coaching – making a substantial difference in their lives.
Thank you, Capital One, for supporting the mission of HumanKind and changing lives.
We’re excited to announce our new Child Development Associate (CDA) class partnership with Central Virginia Community College (CVCC)! The college is going to provide a space for us to teach the class on their campus. This course gives early childhood educators the knowledge they need to complete the CDA exam, which is essential to earning the CDA credential that gives educators the qualifications they need to become directors and leaders in the child care community. Your contribution helps build partnerships such as this that leads to strong foundations for the future of our community — our children.
The class will run at CVCC from Jan. 14-Oct. 6, 2016, and is limited to 30 people. Learn more today!
Building a strong foundation in the early years prepares children for success in school, social settings and life. Our Early Childhood Development programs help young children develop core competencies as well as confidence.
These programs empower families to become healthy and successful. Parents learn necessary skills to prevent child abuse and neglect, to be more self-sufficient and to build a brighter future.
