Nurturing Children. Supporting Parents.

Changing Communities.


Since 1969, Imprints Cares, a nonprofit organization, has been
working to break the cycle of poverty, by giving children
the solid foundation they need for life
through EDUCATION and HEALTH services.

We believe that by nurturing children and supporting parents, we have the ability to change our community for the better.

By doing this, we will build generations of families
that thrive and do their best—not only for themselves,
but also for their neighbors… and that’s YOU!

Ready for School Programs

A child’s first five years of life are essential for school readiness and healthy development. Through tiered-level of services such as non-intensive and intensive home visits, pediatric one-on-one consultations, child assessments, family group meetings, and literacy initiatives, Imprints Cares Family Educators ensure that all of our children are ready for kindergarten.

Before and After School Programs • Camps • Tutoring

Our before and after school, summer enrichment camp, and tutoring services–led by teachers, teacher assistants, and staff–expand students’ learning so they may thrive and ultimately reach their full potential in school.

We’re committed to serving families.

Our qualified staff partner with families through education and health services so that their children are healthy, safe, and ready to learn.

Our Families

Julie and Jonathan Lanford

“The advice and resources we’ve received through Imprints Cares’ educational seminars and parent education sessions have helped us be more confident parents. The seminars and sessions help spread the most effective and evidence-based recommendations. This helps to break cycles that aren’t helpful and introduce parenting strategies that will raise more confident, educated and healthy children. That makes our community a better place for everyone!”

Our Teachers

Lori Richards, Mentor, Teacher & Volunteer

“I find it very rewarding to create enrichment activities and field trips at Imprints Cares. Not only do they bring the fun, but they also provide learning experiences throughout the summer and to the before and after school programs! Mentoring children has always been an important part of my life. Imprints Cares gives me the avenue to be part of a wonderful team to make that happen. I love children of all ages and I learn from them as much as they do from me!”
