Big Kidz Matter
Our newest program Big Kidz Matter was founded in September 2011 out of the necessity of the significant reduction in the main funding source of state subsidized care as a result of enormous legislative cuts to the state’s budget. Because of the aforementioned cuts, many families have been terminated from school readiness programs that assisted families by paying partial or whole costs for aftercare services; leaving hundreds of families with school age children between the ages 7 and 12 with nowhere to turn.
Our major program objective is to help needy families by paying whole or partial costs for care that will keep school age children safe and under the supervision of a licensed nurturing aftercare provider.
Although the State of Florida does not have a minimum age requirement for children to be left in their homes without adult supervision, Big Kidz Matter believes that children between the ages 7 and 12 should not be left in their homes alone to become potential targets for sexual predators, home burglars, and/or other adults who prey upon the innocence and naivety of young children.
At Brown Bears Community Improvement Group Inc. we urge the community to join together and help keep our children safe. The life of a child is very precious, and if we don’t protect them who will?
