All the proceeds from the event will be used to provide “scholarships”, for children of low-income families needing assistance at the Hilltop Childcare and Summer Programs.
Hilltop Neighborhood House currently provides full-time childcare and preschool for 78 children. In addition, another 67 school-aged children participate in our separate afterschool and summer activity programs. Currently, 70% of the children enrolled in our childcare program come from low-income families and receive “scholarships” or tuition assistance (with a waiting list for some age groups over a year long.) And all afterschool programs are free to children in the Hilltop neighborhood. Last year, during 2013, Hilltop Neighborhood House provided more than $215,000, to families in Valparaiso who needed financial assistance for their children’s care.
