Community Need:

Children attending Katy's Kids Preschool are often lacking in the social, emotional, and problem solving skills needed to navigate life succesfully. Their parents are often at a loss as to how to assist their children in these areas.

These are life long skills that our children will use to possitively impact their broken communities.
