Kidango announces Board of Directors vacancy

Submitted By Priscilla Banks

Kidango, a nonprofit leader in early childhood and education, is seeking qualified business and community leaders to join its Board of Directors. The selected Board members will have the opportunity to work closely with other Board volunteers, community leaders, talented staff, and the families served, in a fast-paced, creative, and innovative service delivery structure. Board members learn about the inner workings of this charitable organization serving the diverse population of the San Francisco Bay Area. Kidango's Board Members have the privilege of having an impact on the lives of families and children 0-12 years of age from a diversity of ethnic, social, cultural, and linguistic backgrounds.

Kidango has an inspiring history of 33 years serving the needs of families and children in the Bay Area. Every day, 2,800 children receive early childhood education and care in 47 early childhood development centers and six Superior Court Children's Waiting Rooms located in Alameda, Contra Costa, San Mateo, and Santa Clara Counties. Kidango's Nutrition Department serves close to 5,000 freshly cooked meals every day in every one of the child development centers. Our Mental Health Department provides services to children 0-5 years of age in their natural environment, early intervention for children with special needs, and a wide variety of parenting education and support services to ensure parental involvement and a higher success rate. The majority of the families served face environmental challenges, such as low or very low income, unemployment, domestic violence, and homelessness. Our services are either free of charge or available on a sliding scale.

Kidango employs 550 people who are representative of the community served. Our annual budget is $28 million. For more information about Kidango, please visit our website at www.kidango.org, contact our Development Department at (510) 897- 6934, or by email at nlozada@kidango.org.

Interested community leaders should contact Priscilla Banks to obtain the application and information about the Board of Directors at priscilla.banks@kidango.org.
