“We have been blessed with great support from the community to build the Children’s Neighborhood,” says CIC president and CEO Ken Hair. “However, it’s a struggle to find the necessary funding to sustain operations. Support from the Niceville-Valparaiso Kiwanis is a tremendous help in our efforts to provide a safe, loving home to the abused, neglected and abandoned children of our community.”
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Their mission is serving the children of the world.
The CIC Neighborhood was built by the generous support from the community. It has an emergency shelter for children who are removed without notice from unsafe environments, and five family foster homes for young children. CIC gives a home to about 100 children each year and keeps sibling families together.
