Thunderbirds Charities Awards Upward $20,000 to Support Inclusive Child Care Program

Thunderbirds Charities is providing generous support for Upward’s Inclusive Early Education/Child Care program at The Thunderbirds Charities Child Care Center. This unique center provides child care/early education for children with and without disabilities, including children with severe disabilities who are medically fragile. These children, especially those from low-income families or with severe disabilities, have far fewer options for quality care as most centers are not equipped to meet their needs. We are grateful for this award since the demand for child care/early education, such as that provided by Upward, is reaching crisis levels.

“Our Inclusive Child Care Program serves children with and without disabilities in the same setting,” said CEO Doug Carter. “We are grateful for this grant as well as all of the past support we have received from Thunderbirds Charities.”
