All children deserve a safe, loving environment where they can learn, play and discover their self worth. But children who are homeless often have tremendous obstacles to face – obstacles that many times can be addressed with a hot meal, a caring adult and a safe place to play and learn.
That’s the goal of the sixth annual KIDS Korner Luncheon, an initiative of the Birmingham YWCA aimed at providing care for children of homeless families. KIDS Korner provides curriculum and special programs for children in need. The luncheon, which provides much-needed funds for the program, will be held Thursday, Feb. 21, at the Cahaba Grand Conference Center.
Homeless individuals have a real need for child care during the day while they are working or seeking employment. That’s why the YWCA opened KIDS Korner, a nationally accredited childcare program. There, children are given one-on-one attention and special care that can impact their lives for the better. They’re also able to enjoy a snack and two hot meals every day.
I’m proud to be involved with the YWCA, and hope you’ll consider attending or donating to KIDS Korner. For more information, click here.
