Through the generosity of individuals, corporations, local businesses and foundations, we support a range of high-quality, community-based child care and family-centered programs.

Cindy Fund

Support the Cindy Fund

Cindy Roberts believed in making quality child care available to every
family, regardless of income. As executive director of the
Parent-Infant Center in West Philadelphia, she championed PIC's
longstanding commitment to providing the highest quality child care,
honoring a diverse community, and serving more children.
 
Thanks to Cindy, PIC became one of the earliest partners to
participate in Pennsylvania's Pre-K Counts initiative, established to
provide publicly funded preschool education to 3- and 4-year olds from
economically-disadvantaged households.
 
Countless studies show quality pre-K improves kids' chances of success
in school and in life. But the costs are high and government subsidies
don't begin to cover it.
 
The Roberts-Biddle family wants to see this work continue and has
asked PIC to dedicate a special fund to support pre-K children on
subsidy at PIC.
 
Donate to the Cindy Fund and help us continue what Cindy started.
