Program Costs

Sunshine offers payment plans, sliding scale.  This year our grant funding went to reduce the cost of the program almost $100 from last year, making it more affordable for all families to attend.  We do not have any full or partial sponsorship opportunities at this time.  You may put your name on a waiting list if this opens up, sponsorships will go to those mose in need first.
