HELP US CHANGE THE ODDS FOR KIDS AND FAMILIES IN PARK CITY! Thanks to the generosity of Carol Carter, every dollar you give will be matched!
The Promise Park City Partnership envisions a seamless system of support that ensures our children and families have the opportunity to achieve their potential and is dedicated to meeting the needs of all children and families in the Park City School District and specifically providing targeted services to those that are socially and/or economically disadvantaged.
Today in Park City:
· 39% of kids live in families that make less than $29,000 a year (for a family of four)
· 75% of Caucasians own their own home, while only 2% of Hispanics own their own home
· 81% of Caucasian children have insurance coverage and receive regular medical care as compared to 50% of Hispanic children
· 94% of Caucasian students are achieving on grade level in language arts, compared with 66% of Hispanic students
Partners collaborate in Park City to address these economic disparities and remove barriers so that every child has the opportunity and tools to succeed.
