U.S. Supreme Court to consider child defense fund for kids
The U.N. children’s defense Fund will receive $1.9 billion over the next three years to help families fight abuse, exploitation and neglect, the U.C.L.A. School District Board of Trustees said Wednesday.
The funds will cover the costs of educating and supporting students from low-income families in the Los Angeles Unified School District, Los Angeles County, Los Feliz and San Fernando Valley school districts.
The child defense Fund, which is funded in part by the United Nations and U.K., will have the ability to apply to fund programs, such as emergency and mental health support and scholarships, the board said in a statement.
More to come.
