Welcome to BALANCE4kids!
BALANCE4kids benefits students, teachers, and families in Santa Cruz County in three major ways. We provide aide support to schools at a low cost, which enables us to save the districts we serve tens of thousands of dollars each year by leaving the profit margin in the schools. Secondly, each year teachers are able to apply to our Teacher Grant Program for much needed supplies ranging from computers and art supplies to therapeutic equipment. To date BALANCE4kids has donated over $400,000 in supplies since beginning in 2000. Finally we have the Club Quest Community Center where programs such as Kid Quest enable children and young adults with and without disabilities to come together for activities such as music, cooking, theater, gardening, and field trips into the community. BALANCE4kids has donated over $350,000 to fund the Club Quest Community Center since 2009.
Existing Conditions & Resources For Our Children with Disabilities Are Not Enough
The BALANCE4kids organization will address the needs of children with severe disabilities in a collaborative model with private organizations, parents, and public schools working together. We seek to increase student success in the school and home setting by bringing alternative supplemental programs to public education and the home. BALANCE4kids supports the inadequate existing conditions and resources for children with disabilities through our various programs.
