Childhood Success Stories

See how your efforts have helped our community.

Centerville United Methodist Church

"We began the year with a new programs using out new technology to help our students learn the alphabet. One of our more introverted students who never spoke to the teachers suddenly began to sing and say all of her letters. The next day her mother came in to drop her off and was in tears to let us know how gratefully she was to she how much she had improved not only with speaking and learning but just dancing around the house singing her ABC’s."

Oak Park Early Learning Academy

"My son received a scholarship for his daycare for about a year. You hear the old adage "every little bit helps," and that's exactly how I feel. His scholarship was for $30, and that extra money meant that I could buy more groceries, or pay my water or sewer bill! It has allowed us to keep my son in childcare so he gets the socialization and education that I feel is necessary for all kids his age! I have seen my son grow and learn so many things while he's been at Oak Park, and we are so lucky to have the financial help to allow him to blossom into a tiny person! We can't thank the United Way of Whitewater Valley enough for helping our family!"

Achieva EXCEL program

"My son was referred to First Steps after an evaluation with the EXCEL program. My son is a different child now. He acts more safely and pays attention to his surroundings. He speaks a lot more now, as well."

Every Child Can Read

"I personally want to thank you for all the love and support for my student. He really loved the program, the class and it has really helped him this summer. You are awesome! Thank you for everything!"
