KIND is dedicated to improving the lives of young people by building a foundation in Christianity through education and life experiences that will encourage them to change the world for good. KIND is currently open to any child from kindergarten to 8th grade who live in zip codes 45403 and 45410. We have a long wait list, so we hope to grow the program to serve more students and older ages.
Many of Dayton’s children face significant challenges towards their development. Food insecurity. Academic gaps. English as a second language. Limited home supervision. Transportation barriers. Lack of financial resources for extracurricular activities. Nearby crime and drug use. The children need positive and stable relationships, support systems, and experiences to help them overcome those challenges and thrive to their full potential.
