(This amendment provides $50,000 the first year from the general fund to ForKids, Inc., to establish a model early childhood pilot project in Norfolk for children ages 0-5. ForKids, a human services agency with a proven track record of success, will open an extended-hour day-care center based on a best-practice model from North Carolina (Abecedarian Project). The Project has demonstrated remarkable long-term results in grade achievement, improved test scores, increased high school and college graduation rates, lowered teen birth rates, and improved employment rates for poor adults.)
