The Coalition serves nearly 5,000 children a day in Northwest Florida. Additionally, the Coalition provides funding assistance to our community families and caregivers so that nearly 3,500 parents, foster parents, and grandparents can continue to work or attend school.

For less than $10 per day, we can accomplish the following:

  • One year of School Readiness & Early Learning experiences for one child.
  • Professional Development & support, performance funding for childcare programs.
  • Quality education & childcare, resource & referral, financial stability for families.

We invite you to join our efforts by making a generous tax-deductible contribution. Make a one-time donation or multiply your impact by making a monthly gift!
