CCCR faces an urgent need. Following Hurricane Irma one of our four early learning centers, Child’s Path, needs a complete roof replacement. The cost of a new roof is approximately $50,000. Unfortunately, insurance has denied our claim because of the depreciated value of an older roof. This cost is in addition to over $150,000 in hurricane losses in 2017.
There are signs of leaking on the ceiling of every room where our children play and learn. If we are unable to replace the roof before rainy season, heavy rain will likely make the damage much worse. Mold could grow and potentially displace 85 children in our care.
We provide partial tuition assistance to 70 families at Child’s Path. In all likelihood, these families will not be able to afford child care elsewhere. For these families, sacrificing two weeks of income to watch their children would be devastating, almost irrecoverable.
Our goal is to raise $50,000 by May 31st. It is through the kindness and generosity of people like you that we can continue to care for these children and support these families.
Let’s Raise the Roof!
