"If our American way of life fails the child, it fails us all.'' -- Pearl S. Buck, American writer, 1892–1973
The economy of a community can be measured in many ways, though perhaps none more important for the future than the health and well-being of children and families.
That's why 83 Degrees
today is launching KidsBay
, a new Focus Area
dedicated to reporting on the economic successes of the Tampa Bay region when it comes to being a kid and to raising kids.
You'll find stories in KidsBay
about talented people, innovative ideas and investments, global diversity and sense of place. We'll focus on arts, education, entrepreneurship, environment, health, housing, technology, transportation and other issues affecting the lives of nearly 1 million children who call the Tampa Bay region home.
Our goal is to help explain challenges and to feature successes as models for others in expectation of generating even more solutions and enhancing Tampa Bay's quality of life.
