The Jess Parrish Medical Foundation awarded The Children’s Center
a $7,500 grant, designated for the center’s Scholarship Program.
As the community begins to feel the affects of the job losses at Kennedy
Space Center, more families need financial assistance to keep their children
enrolled in the high quality care, education and therapeutic programs
and services offered at The Children’s Center.
“The scholarship from The Children’s Center has supported me
in a very profound way, “ said the single father of three young
children. “Without the scholarship we would have been emotionally
stranded during a time when we simply could not afford to be. The scholarship
made it possible for me, as a single father, to give my children the best
possible care at a time when they most needed it. My gratitude for this
is beyond belief.”
The Center scholarship gave these children a sense of stability in a nurturing
environment during a very difficult time after their mother lost her long
battle with breast cancer.
The Children's Center, an affiliate of Parrish Medical Center, offers
a variety of learning and early development programs for area children.
Located at 5650 South U.S. 1 in Titusville, The Children’s Center
consists of six local partner agencies working together to meet the needs
of children. The Center annually serves nearly 2,500 children and their
families. Visit The Children's Center online at parrishchildrenscenter.com.
