Free Swimming Classes & Water Safety Courses
According to 2019 statistics by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, 39 children under the age of 17 have drowned in the state alone. As families enjoy their summer vacations and outdoor pool activities, these incidents are expected to only rise. As such, Karya Kares has collaborated with Bridging Gaps to provide free swimming lessons and water safety courses for children ages 3-12 at 12 properties across Houston.
Altogether, these courses have educated over 100 children in the basics of navigating water and drowning prevention methods in just two months of weekly classes. Over the years, both parents and their children have come to deeply appreciate these services.
