United Way of Southwest Wyoming awarded a $4,000 grant to Lincoln Uinta Child Development Association (LUCDA). The grant funds will provide scholarships to children who attend the four LUCDA preschools in Lincoln County. The preschools are located in Kemmerer, Afton, Thayne and Alpine.
LUCDA is a non-profit organization providing services to children, ages birth through five in Lincoln and Uinta counties. LUCDA holds the contract with the Wyoming Department of Health and the Wyoming Department of Education to provide Early Intervention, Special Education and preschool services to qualifying children.
LUCDA also offers Head Start to income eligible children and families. The scholarship opportunities funded through United Way will allow children who do not qualify for other other programs to receive a free, developmentally appropriate preschool experience.
