2014 Ready, Set, School! Program - Preparing Kids to Succeed

IFCS’ Ready, Set, School! Program helps hundreds of children each year succeed in school.

We use a priority number system that tracks how many times a family has used this program in the past.  A first-time client who has never received Ready, Set, School! will be at the top of the priority list.  Due to the priority number system and depending on how many sponsors are available to sponsor children, we cannot guarantee that every family will be sponsored.How To Be Seen And Stay Safe On Your Bike In Low Sunlight
