Candle of Hope
While all Fannie Battle families pay tuition, childcare fees and subsidies account for only 50% of our operating budget.
The effects that COVID-19 has on our community highlight the already pressing need for accessible and affordable childcare. And it is through programs, like our Family Empowerment Program, that reaffirm our organization and partnerships are truly important and needed more than ever.
On March 18th, our Board of Directors determined that temporarily closing the facility and canceling our annual Yum!East fundraiser in May would be the safest, most prudent course of action. Since closure, we have been fortunate to continue providing our staff their normal wages; allowing us to retain our experienced and caring staff. Additionally, tuition for all families has been waived and we hope to continue to waive tuition until we can safely reopen.
Thank you for your support and dedication to make a lasting impact in our community today.
