Help Pre-K Children

Essential programs that help our Pre-K children may be cut by Federal Legislators in mid-December. Let’s help Pre-K children by raising our voices in unison to make a difference.Mother_and_child_silhouette

Promise the Children supports funding for programs that help Pre-K children living in poverty. Families living on minimum wages cannot afford to pay for adequate health care, food, quality pre-K and, too often, even housing for their children. Both father and mother must work multiple jobs, and are not paid a living wage.

On a positive note many of our federal legislators responded to pressure, and voted for, and won adequate funding through September 30, 2017 for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that provides healthcare for about 8 million financially eligible children who are not covered by the Affordable Care Act.

In regard to prevention, mothers, both single and married, desperately need access to birth control in order to prevent the birth of a child whom they cannot support either financially or emotionally because of the daily stress of going from one job to another, the lack of adequate public transportation, and the need to pick up food at available food pantries.

Ask your legislator by phone or email to “Please fund Planned Parenthood and all others involved in family planning for those living in poverty, including the provision of birth control in order to prevent abortion, and the birth of a child whom a mother cannot care for financially or emotionally either in their Pre-K years or later”.

Please donate to Promise the Children so that we may continue our work on giving you information about programs that support our nation’s Pre-K children who live in poverty.

Thanks for taking action in support of our nation’s Pre-K children and their parents.
