We just received news that we have received a grant for $9,650 from Community First Foundation for the launch of the Jefferson Community Center at Jefferson Junior/Senior High School. The focus of the grant is connecting families in the 80124 area with resources so that they can thrive. Families who visit the Community Center will fill out a family needs survey and then we will work to connect them with a navigator who can assist them with a variety of resources in the area. We are also working with community partners to host monthly educational classes for parents on a variety of subjects. Our goal is to show that connecting parents with resources can have an impact on the educational outcomes of the students in that family.

We are excited and thankful for this grant from Community First Foundation and look forward to seeing the impact with families in our area.
