Donations and local funding accounts for more than a third of the operating budget. Support from the community is essential.The number of children with a disability is on the rise across the country.
The U.S. Government reported 1/7th of all children have a developmental disability. By helping these children early, all of Kansas City reaps the rewards. Studies show for every $1 spent on early education and early intervention, the community sees an $8 return from children needing less assistance a they grow.
