Circle Time

The Circle Time parent group engages parents of children 2 months old to 5 ½ years old. Circle Time seeks to cultivate a better informed, connected and prepared parenting community by utilizing the Play Cousins Collective Family Network and the Ages and Stages Questionnaire provided by Metro United Way. The Ages and Stages questionnaire helps to monitor the early development of children ensuring they’re on track for true kindergarten readiness. Circle Time aims to bolster a sense of community with its participants through monthly events that are fun, informative, and empowering.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
