My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Childrens Health Council Inc, Palo Alto, CA, USA
We are one of the few fortunate families that was given financial aid assistance by the CHC for Sandhill School and for that we are very thankful and grateful. Kyle started going to Sandhill school when he was 6 years old (SY 2016-2017) without knowing all the alphabet, now he is already 10 yrs old and not just knows how to read but loves it. He used to cry every single day when we brought him to his old school but now he is excited every single day, even with distant learning. Kyle’s academic disadvantage was just superficial to more underlying learning disability challenges, such as emotional, psychosocial and behavioral aspects, that could not have been managed without Sandhill and CHC help.
Kyle was very lucky to be given an opportunity to once again attend Sandhill school by being one of CHC scholarship recipients. The scholarship has helped Kyle improve so much academically despite his learning disability. Sandhill has embraced and accepted Kyle for what he is and has made him believe himself.
Kyle started dancing ballet in his 1st year at Sandhill, and had represented his Dance School regionally and Nationally, in all of those events, Kyle has demonstrated the values and teaching that he had received from Sandhill, to have fun, stay focused, and learn from your mistakes. It is our greatest hope that Kyle will rise to the level of his potential and we are convinced that he will do so with the help of CHC and Sandhill.
We are truly grateful for CHC and Sandhill's gift of education to our son Kyle. Your generosity and commitment is exactly the kind of community involvement we need to keep our children motivated. - Sandhill Parent
