Completely KIDS was recently awarded a $308,924 grant from United Way of the Midlands.
The gift insures Completely KIDS will be able to maintain high-quality programming for kids and families in several of South Omaha’s schools, as well as area homeless shelters.
The funding will assist Completely KIDS in expanding family programs, including the ability to offer more classes at Field Club and Jackson elementary schools.
Additionally, with the help of this grant, Completely KIDS will continue to provide a safe environment with caring adult mentors for children in its Out-of-School Time programs.
The OST programs offer academic support and life skills development opportunities for youth. On average, Completely KIDS youth miss fewer days of school and maintain a higher grade point average than their peers.
The United Way of the Midlands is a partner of WOWT.
