The giving season is upon us, and it is a good time to be altruistic. There are many worthy non-profit organizations in need of your support. We hope you will consider Lewis-Clark Early Childhood Program as you plan your charitable giving budget.
We are a private non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to provide early childhood education and family support services for limited income families through our Head Start, Early Head Start and Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program. We believe our 40-year-plus record of providing exceptional family services to Southeastern Washington and North Central Idaho puts us in a unique position to reassure all donors that investing in young children and their families pays off.
Research indicates that every dollar invested in quality early childhood care and education like Head Start yields high rewards, as much as seven to nineteen dollars for every one dollar invested. A typical gift of $100 now, results in an investment of $700 to $1,900 in a local community’s future. Children who experience Head Start preschool are less likely to commit crimes; more likely to earn higher wages; more likely to graduate from high school, go on to earn a college degree and base their careers in the community where they grew up. These findings are well documented through years of monitoring and research and the conclusions are virtually unanimous: Head Start Works!
