Societies have long been measured by how they respond to, and care for, their most vulnerable populations. The BVEF has determined children are a particularly vulnerable populations in our community. Recent studies estimate 87% of school age children in our community are live in households earning below the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) and are “food insecure.” Therefore the BVEF seeks to invest in activities and initiatives that:
Develop self-sustaining programs aimed at securing the basic needs of children, such as food, shelter, education, and access to healthcare.
Develop programs and organizations that maximize opportunities for Children in our community to lead happy productive lives.
