What does it mean for a nonprofit to be CRA aligned?
Each nonprofit on Community Qualifier has been reviewed by findCRA utilizing a dual evaluation process. Nonprofits are first evaluated by our proprietary algorithm, CRANIA, and then further validated by our CRA experts. When nonprofit passes both parts of this review, we create a nonprofit profile for them on Community Qualifier. From there, a nonprofit can claim their profile and add additional information including their programs & services, counties served, targeted clients and income groups and more.

Kindhearted Kids Social-Emotional Learning Curriculum
Two by Two's Kindhearted Kids social-emotional learning curriculum is a powerful and effective program to promote student's healthy social emotional development, increased academic performance and success and well-being in school. Kindhearted Kids is for kids ages 7-9 (2nd or 3rd grade). The focus is on four core values: Respect, Responsibility, Empathy and Kindness. We incorporate the adoption of a stuffed dog or cat as a catalyst to teach these core values. Students are immediately captivated by their adopted pet and character instruction naturally takes root in the hearts of the children. Lessons also weave in strands of reading, math and writing making this an easy, yet robust program for anyone to deliver.

Kindhearted Kids to the Rescue
Kindhearted Kids to the Rescue is a powerful social-emotional learning curriculum for ages 9-11 (4th or 5th grade). This program focuses on growing in core values: Empathy, Cooperation, Perseverance, Responsibility and Citizenship. Students become part of a "family" group that is responsible for preparing family members and pets for any type of problem they may encounter during a camping adventure. With each lesson, Captain Character pays a visit and presents a dilemma to the families and to cheer participants on in their character development. Students must cooperate and learn to make responsible, empathetic decisions as they persevere to become good citizens. Working together as a family unit is the key component in this program.
