Welcome to the United Way of Southern Cameron County Success By 6 Wish List.
United Way of Southern Cameron County – Success By 6 is committed to ensuring that children birth to 6 years old, are prepared for school and a life of learning by providing parents with resources and services to quality early learning opportunities for young children, because we know that learning begins at birth.
Children in Southern Cameron County are considered at “risk” for school failure from the beginning. These children live in households that might have one or more of the characteristics that define children with educational disadvantages. There are over 22,000 children under 5 years of age in this community, with more than half living below the poverty level (51 percent below poverty level US Census 2006) in Southern Cameron County.
Because of these devastating statistics, it’s imperative that we reach children from birth. Newborn packets, distributed at local hospitals, have proven effective for getting books into the hands of new mothers. Unfortunately, board books are costly, and we’re not able to purchase the 6000+ books needed to ensure that every child receive a book at birth this coming year.
Success By 6 is looking for your help. Help us get these Newborn packets out and into our community. Every book donated can change a child’s life. Together, we can create a lasting impact in this community.
