Educational Opportunities for Children and Families (EOCF) has been providing premier early learning and family support programs for over 52 years. We serve more than 1,350 children and families annually who meet Federal Poverty Guidelines or have a child with a documented disability. EOCF not only provides quality preschool and childcare, we offer parents, guardians and pregnant women opportunities to build on their strengths and play a vital role in their children’s education. Parents receive support and training in parenting, child development, disabilities, nutrition, budgeting, home literacy learning and more. Our parents are mentored to become advocates for their children.
THE NEED IS GREAT!
Did you know the median price of childcare in our community is $932 - $1,105 per child, per month? When we compare this to the Clark County poverty rate, it leaves it close to impossible for families to receive affordable care and learning for kindergarten readiness.
Current funding allows EOCF to reach 25% of eligible families.
Imagine the impact on our community if we could reach 100%!
EOCF FILLS THE GAP AND MORE!
Did you know that children receive 1/3 to 2/3 of their daily nutritional needs from our programs? This is critical for families with food instability. The combined elements of EOCF’s programs support families on their path to self-sufficiency.
YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO BE PART OF THE SOLUTION!
You have the opportunity to make a significant impact in EOCF’s ability to provide programs that break the generational poverty trend through literacy and early childhood education. Preparing our preschool children for kindergarten gives them a head start on their path to a successful life. With your help, we can work together to strengthen our community by building strong children and healthy families.
Our children and families appreciate your support!
