KidSafe Foundation Awarded Grant From The Norman Shulevitz Foundation To Provide KidSafe Prevention Education Programs To Title One Elementary Schools In Our Community.
Boca Raton, FL—KidSafe Foundation (www.kidsafefoundation.org) has been awarded a generous grant from The Norman Shulevitz Family Foundation to provide KidSafe Foundation’s programs to Title One Elementary Schools in our Community. This grant will provide “KidSafe for Kids” an 8 week in school program for children ages 4 – 12, parent seminars and teacher workshops. Child abuse is an epidemic with 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually exploited before the age of 18. However, 95% of abuse and exploitation of children is preventable with education. KidSafe believes that every child deserves prevention education and the right to be safe, have a voice and know how to access help. Every adult needs to be the first line of defense in a child’s safety.
“The Norman Shulevitz Foundation has been a supporter of KidSafe Foundation for years. We are beyond appreciate of their support for what we do in the community to keep children safe. Their funding has provided hundreds of children, parents, teachers and professionals with KidSafe programs and our two award winning children’s safety books. On Saturday, March 7th 2015 at our 6th Annual “Shine the Light” Gala we will honor The Norman Shulevitz Foundation for their continuous support of KidSafe. “ said, Sally Berenzweig Cofounder and Executive Director of KidSafe Foundation
