Programs and Services
Homelessness influences all aspects of a child’s development – the stress of transition can impact academic performance and social competence. The Coalition’s Renaissance Children’s Center (RCC) provides a safe, stable environment for children to develop the skills necessary to succeed in school and with their peers.
At the Children’s Center, teaching life skills is the number one priority. Children from economically stressed families sometimes lack the skills to diffuse anger, feel empathy, and resolve conflicts. Our staff is specially trained to help children learn how to develop these qualities. Highly trained staff members show children how to work well with others. They are given the tools for academic achievement and creative problem solving. Children of all income levels learn and play together, encouraging empathy and understanding amongst classmates from diverse economic backgrounds. Skills learned at RCC prevent future generations of homelessness while promoting long-term success.
RCC serves 85 children ranging in age from six weeks to 12 years, with 65 child care slots targeted for homeless and low-income families. The center has earned the prestigious 4-star Qualistar rating and is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
