Minding the Gap Project Aims to Improve Academic Success for Low Income Children The College of Human Sciences Center for Family Resilience announces that the George
Kaiser Family Foundation (GKFF) board has awarded a second year of funding for the
Minding the Gap project. The goal for this program is to improve academic success
among children of impoverished families who prefer to keep their children out of early
childhood education programs.
The Center for Family Resilience is a community resource focused on equipping every
family to support its members in achieving their fullest personal and social potential.
The center translates scientific knowledge about families and family life into strategies
that build individual and family resilience. Strategies include individual and family
programs administered by local human and social service agencies, and state and national
policy recommendations to strengthen families.
