Challenge

Inner city students in Richmond, Virginia face many challenges in achieving an education. One of those barriers shouldn't be that they couldn't see the chalkboard or couldn't see to read a book. All of the children we serve are on the federal free and reduced lunch program and most are reliant on Medicaid. We are working in conjunction with several community partners to help raise awareness on the importance of good vision to the overall positive educational experience of a child.

Solution

Children Incorporated began serving vulnerable children in 1964. Our mission is to cater to the emotional, physical, and educational needs of children helping them achieve their full-potential. The agency strives to provide services that meet those basic needs while maintaining the highest levels of integrity for the children we serve. Children Incorporated has assisted more than 250,000 vulnerable children over the past 48 years throughout 24 countries including the United States.
We are partnering with One Sight to remove barriers for education of more than 1,000 inner city children through the provision of free eye exams and glasses.

Long-Term Impact

This service provides more than 1,000 inner city children with a valuable tool in achieving great academic success. Children, Incorporated partners closely with the schools to ensure proper follow up and support is given all year long.
