The Whole Child Foundation
A Non-Profit Organization Supporting
Children, Families and Learning Institutions

The mission of The Whole Child Foundation is to provide healthy solutions in education, mental health and physical health to children and families. Children in today's world have many factors that affect their health that insurance will not cover, mental health facilities cannot pay for, and schools districts are not able to have the budget for. Children are then denied the resources that would help them the best. Sometimes families need extra help in finding the money for after school activities, added psychological testing, OT or PT services or equipment that would help them in their classroom or home. The Whole Child Foundation Scholarship Fund helps these kinds of families. Our Foundation tries to support the whole child in body, mind and emotion. Social-emotional learning is considered to be a top priority on our agenda, and we consider emotional balance to be a key for academic learning and success in their lives.
