How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

In addition to its core programs and services, CCRC hosts several outreach events which further our mission and bring value to thousands of residents in our community. In 2011, we held our 15th Annual Annabelle Godwin Play Day celebrating the importance of learning through play and built the 3rd playground with volunteers from AmWINS Group, Inc. We collected and distributed over 150,000 books through the successful What a Difference a BOOK Makes campaign and hold our 3rd Annual Laps4Literacy event bringing literacy awareness and support to the Antelope Valley. Through our Holiday Book and Toy drives, now an annual event, we gifted close to 10,000 toys and books to children who usually have to go without.

Funding Needs

Early childhood professionals suggest that a program to help parents and child care professionals understand their role in encouraging their child’s development right from birth would help prepare a child for school and life success. Children that live in poverty and those who do not speak English at home have the highest likelihood of not being prepared for school.  An astounding 75% of low-income children are not school ready. The Family Literacy Program helps level the playing field for all children entering kindergarten and empowers parents to give their children the best possible start in life.    Program Goals  ·     Increase the literacy skills of young children so that they can be prepared  for kindergarten and be successful in school.  ·     Increase the literacy skills of parents and family members so that they can support their own child’s/children’s learning as well as enhance their own success.  ·    Increase feelings of confidence and competence for the parent as “teacher”.  ·     Increase parent’s and/or child care professional’s knowledge of child development and ability to detect developmental delays and health issues.  ·      Prepare the parent for what is coming next in their child’s development.

BIO

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"Dear Friends and Supporters,

Child care continues to be a vital component of our community's economic health. Children, parents, and child care businesses depend on CCRC for access to quality education, developmental, and financial support. For 35 years, CCRC has proven that investing in early childhood education has a great return- both for the financial well being of the community and for the health and well being of children and families.

CCRC leverages a diverse array of county, state, and federal contracts, private and foundation grant funding, corporate sponsorships, individual donations and the work of volunteers to provide high quality programs and services. We work strategically to meet emerging needs and have recently begun investing in social business ventures. CCRC would like to recognize its contractors and thank the growing number of community partners and donors that support our mission through their investments of time, enthusiasm, creativity, and philanthropic giving.

 

Child care has long kept California's economy moving and must continue to serve as a foundation for our state's economic recovery. Licensed child care contributes close to $5.5 billion to the state's economy and provides a stable source of care enabling working parents to earn at least $13 billion each year. Those earnings, in turn, create more than $40 billion in total direct, indirect, and induced personal income, almost $5 billion in tax revenues, and support an estimated 1.1 million jobs.

 

Child Care is a force that:

·        Created jobs

·        Enables parents to work

·        Enables local businesses to thrive

 

CCRC strives to stay efficient, effective, and a leader in the non profit sector.

Thank you for helping CCRC encourage, support, and educate the 25,000 children and families we serve each month."
