Kacen Charles Social & Recreational Programs
Kacen Charles Educational & Health Programs
Our first inaugural program year saw the beginning of our very first community educational and health initiative. Working with Administrators & Staff at the Fifth Ward Elementary School, KCCF, Inc. provided a hot breakfast meal for over 60 kids on Saturday mornings during free tutoring sessions. KCCF, Inc. has also committed to and provided over $500 of school supplies to teachers for their classroom supplies.  
KCCF, Inc. first recreational initiative was a very successful event. KCCF, Inc. teamed up with the National Basketball Association & the New Orleans Pelicans to put on the Jr. Pelicans Training Camp. We served over 75 kids after school with their parents. The kids were taught essential basketball skills from representatives from the New Orleans Pelicans. KCCF, Inc. is currently planning more after-school and out of school recreation projects.
