LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla.
Smart City has awarded multi-year grants totaling $400,000, to be equally divided between Great Oaks Village and Orange County Head Start children’s organizations.
The Great Oaks Village program has been in existence since 1924, providing housing, educational and social opportunities, and counseling to abused, neglected, or abandoned children in the state of Florida. This facility has seven homes and facilities, providing for up to 84 children ranging in age from 6-18 years old. Since 1965, Orange County Head Start has provided low-income preschool children with the tools to enter school better enabled to learn and, with a greater set of social skills. Currently, the facility offers its services to over 1,536 children and their families at 21 centers in the Central Florida area. Both the Orange County Head Start and the Great Oaks Village programs provide children with the assistance and support that will help them reach their full potential.
“We’ve had great success in Central Florida and we want to give back to the community where we thrived. We chose to contribute to these organizations because they reflect broadly held values and have meaningful impact,” said Marty Rubin, chief executive officer of Smart City.
