Educare brings hope after water crisis

FLINT (WJRT) - (04/24/2018) - A new school in Flint is working to make sure every child has a fair chance to rise above the water crisis to achieve their dreams.

Four years after switching the city's water source to the Flint River, there are still plenty of fears about lead poisoning and what the future will bring.

But Educare is providing something that too many children growing up in Flint have gone without for far too long.

It's the first facility of it's kind in Michigan.

It is run by the Genesee Intermediate School District. So, although only 220 students attend, students throughout the Flint school district have access to the same support and services.

Enrollment is free for families who qualify based on income and were exposed to Flint water.
