KPS4Parents needs to cover the costs of airfare to send a trainer to another state to teach social workers about special education processes and procedures.

KPS4Parents is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that focuses on appropriate educational outcomes for all K-12 students, particularly those challenged by disability. We have experience in special education and civil rights investigations and legal matters, best practices in instruction, and psychological research into human learning and development across the lifespan. We are headquartered in CA but work with families, educators, and other professionals throughout the United States and in some other countries.

We have been approached by a non-profit professional association of social workers in another state to provide training to their staff, but neither or our organizations had expected this to come up and have no budgeted funds for travel. The event is on June 6, 2014, and, one way or another, we will get there. Please help us cover these travel expenses by donating today!

Help us help these social workers understand the special education process so they can give appropriate guidance to the families they serve and advocate effectively for them when necessary.

While we are in the area, we intend to also put on one of our Learn & Grow Educational Series events (see http://learn-and-grow.org) in which we teach children ages 5-9 and their families about where food comes from, what makes food healthy or not, and how to grow their own fresh fruits and vegetables, no matter where they live, in self-watering containers built from recycled and/or inexpensive materials. 

You will help us accomplish two charitable objectives in one trip with your donation!
