Children’s Square is a private, not-for profit organization founded on December 23, 1882. Children’s Square has a rich history of caring for children from birth to 21 and their families, meeting their individualized needs, instilling hope and helping restore lives. Their mission is: “To teach, every day, the values and life skills essential to a successful life – one full of caring, contribution and commitment - Empowering each with: The Vision to See– and the value of setting an ideal for which to reach; The Courage to Try – and the value of accepting each obstacle as a challenge to meet; and The Will to Succeed – and the value of making the commitment to persevere."
Vice President of Resource Development, Cheryl Clark, stopped by the KIOS-FM studios to chat with Mike Hogan about the mission, and more specifically, the many channels of help they provide to families.
She also mentioned that the 2019 Jason Awards will be held November 15th at the Mid-America Center. A reception will begin at 6 p.m. with the dinner and program to follow. The Jason Awards event is held annually to recognize individuals, couples, organizations or businesses that exemplify the mission of Children’s Square U.S.A. — of teaching life skills and values necessary for a successful life.
