Foundation awards $150,000 to childhood development projectsWritten by Admin
The Community Foundation gave two $75,000 grants to Region A Partnership for Children and Southwestern Child Development Commission.
One of the grants will expand the Parents as Teachers program, which benefits participating families by offering home visits, group connections, child screenings and a resource network. The other grant will be used to improve access to quality, affordable early childhood care and education that is provided by the Southwestern Child Development Commission.
The Community Foundation is a permanent regional resource that facilitates $11 million in charitable giving annually.
