The Early Learning Coalition of Okaloosa and Walton Counties is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote collaborative school readiness and early childhood service system, to deliver an integration of cognitive, social/emotional and physical development experiences that increase children's opportunities for success. We work with children and their families in our local communities. The children we serve includes those from families who are at risk of abuse and neglect, homelessness or abandonment, children whose parents are working or in school and are struggling to cover costly child care expenses, and children who are with Child Protective Services. We also serve inclusion children; children who are mentally and physically challenged, and we assist parents and teachers through training and continuous classes to help them provide the best quality education for these children. The Fundraising event will open opportunities to serve the community by promoting quality education that will positively impact individuals, children and their families, and to contribute to the common good and collective vision of our community. The Coalition matches your donations with $15.67 to every dollar, which gives us $16.57 to send a child to school.
