The Centro Mater Foundation is a South Florida based institution that aims to support the efforts of Centro Mater Child Care Services Inc. The foundation helps to provide for the child care organization’s summer programs, which endeavor to keep at-risk youths focused and progressive during months of reduced stimulation, and supports the maintenance of all centers.
Additionally, the Centro Mater Foundation—along with other agencies— works closely with the child care services organization to implement evidence-based practices; ensure the effectiveness of program implementation and fidelity to activities; connect children and their families to additional services within the community; enhance communication within care systems; and evaluate and examine efforts.
The efforts of the Centro Mater Foundation are spearheaded by a dedicated board of directors.
