Challenge

It seems pretty simple. A child who can't see or hear can't succeed. And the experts tell us, experiencing success early in school is critical to succeeding....in life!

Solution

The mission of the KEX Kids Fund is to provide basic vision and hearing care to all eligible children in 16 counties in Oregon and SW Washington. Since 1987, we have been able to provide eyeglasses and hearing aids to all eligible children requesting our help.
Children who cannot see well have difficulty achieving school success. This project provides vision exams and eyeglasses to children who show signs of poor eyesight and have no resources for vision care. Children whose families are on free or reduced-price lunch programs complete a simple application to apply for KEX Kids Fund support. Our network providers provide vision care for a fixed cost of $125 paid by the KEX Kids Fund.

Long-Term Impact

We think helping these kids succeed early in life might actually prevent much larger problems later on. Glasses and hearing aids might be all it takes. Like we said, it seems pretty simple.
