Aberg Center for Literacy have received a 2016 Dallas Women's Foundation grant.
Dallas Women's Foundation grantees are chosen because they contribute to a "positive social and economic change for women and girls". This important grant was awarded to Aberg Center in large part as a result of our Early Childhood and Family Literacy Programs, which allow women who have young children to continue their education without the burden and added expense of costly childcare, while providing key support to those mothers through family education. Currently 65% of Aberg Center for Literacy students are women or girls.
The Dallas Women's Foundation, the largest regional women's fund in the world, is a trusted leader in advancing positive social and economic change for women and girls. The foundation "provides grants to North Texas organizations that drive change in our community, and in our world, by unlocking resources for women and elevating the dialogue around women's issues".
Aberg Center for Literacy is greatly honored to be a recipient of this grant and look forward to implementing the funding to further develop the program to serve more and more women in need with key literacy programs that aim to improve lives, strengthen families, and break the cycle of poverty.
