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

This program enables us to serve more than 1,000 children each year by providing them with thorough screenings and exams along with eyeglasses that fit their individual styles and needs.

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.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
