Every Child Matters to USTA Florida

January 8, 2007 11:39 AM

USTA Florida attended the 2nd annual Friends of Children breakfast on Jan. 17 in Daytona Beach to support Community Partnership for Children of Volusia and Flagler counties.  The breakfast was the cornerstone fundraising event for the organization and their Every Child Matters program.

Community Partnership for Children is responsible for for over 1,400 children each year who have been victims of abuse or neglect.  Their ambition is to ensure that children in crisis are given the treatment and attention they desperately need and the opportunity to experience normalcy while in care.

Ultimately, the organization aims to find children short-term housing and then transition them into safe, long-term care with their immediate family, loving relatives, a guardian, licensed foster care or an independent living facility. 

The annual breakfast event served as the forum to get community residents and businesses involved.  Providers were called upon to be an activity, education, health, or home and family partner.
Community Partnership for Children provides children with educational opportunities, mentoring programs and training.  Children are able to participate in sports, arts, extra-curricular activities and will enjoy cultural or educational events that would otherwise be unaffordable.
Most importantly, kids are given the opportunity to survive crisis.

USTA Florida is proud to partner with Community Partnership for Children as the activity partner for their Every Child Matters program.  Playing tennis enhances fitness, fosters growth and most of all, it lets kids have fun!
