Children’s Fund (CF) is AdvoCats main outreach service. School principals and counselors at each of the ten campuses identify children and their families in need of assistance and refer them to the Children’s Fund Committee for assistance. CF works directly with the AISD to provide assistance for students in need. The CF evaluates each student’s needs on an individual basis and all information is confidential. The CF assists in the following areas of need:
• Medical or dental assistance
• Living expenses
• School supplies and school-related expenses
• Professional counseling
• Other crisis interventions
The Children’s Fund spent over $40,000 during the 2016-2017 school year meeting the needs of over 500 students and their families.
