It takes a village. Will you be part of ours?

The Children’s Center depends heavily upon the support of our community partners in order to provide the high-quality programs that help our families thrive. Your donation could make all the difference in the lives of those we serve.

Give Local 757 is April 23rd!

We nurture and educate children and their families! Our Annual Giving Day is April 23rd! We look forward to once again participating in the Give Local 757 event where tons of nonprofits in Southeastern Virginia will rally to raise funds for their missions!

This year, we are asking for our community to join us in supporting our Early Care & Education program! Unlike our Head Start programs community childcare programs operate directly from donations, grants, and parent fees. Many working parents do not qualify for our Head Start programs! This licensed program provides high-quality education incorporating the STREAMin3 curriculum. We want to continue to provide this program for our community, and we need your help!

If you would like to support us with a monetary contribution, simply click DONATE below! Other ways to help include spreading the news! Tell your friends, family, and neighbors about our mission! You can also give a donation in honor or memory of a loved one.

Help build brighter futures for children!
