Helping Children of Injured Workers: Kids’ Chance of California
Serious work-related accidents can have a devastating financial impact on families – especially children – and their ability to afford a post-high school education. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, California alone had 196 work-related deaths in 2013 and 334 deaths in 2014. Kids’ Chance of California was formed to help alleviate the financial burden that many of these families face.
Kids’ Chance of California is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization with a mission to provide need-based educational scholarships to the children of California workers who have been fatally or seriously injured on the job. Since being founded in 2012, 35 scholarships have been awarded, but there are many more students in need of assistance.
Kids’ Chance of California needs your help and urges you to get involved in one of the following ways:
- Helping Kids’ Chance of California identify children who could be helped by a post-high school educational scholarship
