Partnering with Lighthouse Child and Family Development Center, we offer quality care and education with a focus on strengthening families through community collaboration.
State subsidies and scholarships help pay for early childhood education when parents can’t afford it.
Caring for the Whole Family
The family coordinator takes a wholistic approach to helping the entire family in each town with a Life360 Community Services preschool.
Each family support coordinator helps identify a variety of problems affecting a family’s ability to succeed, including:
- Unreliable transportation
- Inadequate housing
- Interpersonal problems
This is a great opportunity for preschool students to overcome difficulties by observing how the staff works with the parents to improve the family dynamics. These interactions help prepare children to navigate through life successfully.
Identifying the Causes of Food Insecurity
Some children in rural and urban communities go hungry because of poverty or lack of access to basic resources.
Because our team members are a part of the communities we serve, we’re able to identify the causes of food insecurity and help fill the hunger gaps for thousands of children.
We also partner with government organizations, individuals, and corporations to make it happen.
Child and Adult Care Food Program
Through a partnership with the United States Department of Agriculture, we provide meals to students in rural areas at the end of each school day. Each meal includes servings of:
- Whole Grains
- Meat/meat alternate
Emergency Relief Efforts
Through the USDA emergency relief efforts in 2020, we served more than 3 million meals during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Over 10 million meals served
Since we started serving food to children ages 18 and under in 2016, we have now served over 10 million meals to kids in need.
