It’s been 25 years since our first afterschool program opened its doors at Oak Grove Elementary for children of poverty in Medford. With the vision to ensure all children could find opportunity through education, Kids Unlimited was founded. Since our inception, Kids Unlimited has become more than a program; it’s become a movement capable of transcending barriers while transforming lives of our participants and our community.
Our greatest organizational asset continues to be our ability to grow and respond to immediate and emergent needs. Our programs and services have been a two-decade learning journey, and the successes have been remarkable. Since the beginning, the foundation of our work has been the relationship to our kids and families. Together, we have shared, learned and evolved our programs to be responsive and conscious of overcoming the barriers of poverty.
As our programs grew, our children and their families grew with us, and their successes became a living testament to what can happen when opportunities for children are created. The successes of the mission have lifted spirits, inspired hope and changed norms. Kids Unlimited is committed to building on what we have learned and believe strongly in our Building the Block campaign to further our mission.
Ours is a holistic solution for supporting children and families with integrated services, available seven days a week at a campus capable of providing education, afterschool programs, medical services, mental health supports, parent and family resources, early learning programs and community recreation. More than services, the expansion of our facilities and campus provide a greater capacity for children to learn, eat freshly prepared meals, play and dance, explore, dream and, ultimately, imagine their Unlimited futures.
