I&F Celebrates Kids’ Chance Awareness Week

Kids’ Chance of America believes that a significant difference can be made in the lives of all children affected by a workplace injury by helping them pursue and achieve their educational goals. Kids’ Chance is a national non-profit organization which provides educational opportunities and scholarships for the children of workers seriously or fatally injured on the job.

Cumulatively, since their inception in 1988, Kids’ Chance organizations have awarded 5,479 scholarships totaling almost 14 million dollars. Kids’ Chance Awareness Week is designed to increase our visibility through special outreach events in each state that will spread the word about Kids’ Chance scholarship opportunities.
