In 2010, the Kenzi’s Kidz program was launched to help relieve the financial burdens of low-income families who were taking necessary steps to create a stable environment for their children. Each year, six (6) families in need are chosen. Over the course of one year, the Kenzi’s Kidz program helps provide children of these families with fundamental items to succeed, providing educational supplies, access to extracurricular activities, and gifts for birthdays and holidays.
Parents also receive direct assistance through financial planning services, CNA (certified nursing assistant) certification courses, car repairs, etc. These services relieve the financial burdens on families, help them to increase the long-term stability of the family, and provide critical school supplies and outlets for cognitive stimulation that would otherwise be unavailable to the children of participating families due to their significant financial constraints.
