On April 22nd, 2017, Aberg Center for Literacy was awarded the Meadows Foundation Grant. The grant goes toward expanding family literacy, early childhood education, and parent enrichment.
Aberg Center for Literacy has made strides this past year to expand these programs, adding family literacy and early childhood education programs at the Casa Linda location, and greatly increasing the number of families served. However, further expansion is necessary to meat the growing needs of Dallas families.
"We are honored to be a first time recipient of this grant from the Meadows Foundation" says Aberg Center Executive Director Shana Harrison. "This generous grant from the Meadow's Foundation will help facilitate the growth and development of these programs in effort to serve even more families in the upcoming year."
About the Meadow's Foundation
The Meadows Foundation funds in the areas of arts and culture, civic/public affairs, education, health, and human services, with special emphasis on three high-priority initiatives: environment, mental health, and public education.
Algur and Virginia Meadows established The Meadows Foundation in 1948, in effort to create a wellspring of resources to benefit and serve the people of their state of Texas. They left the privilege of giving to future generations of their family, with the mandate to continuously improve the quality of life for Texans. This meant not only to give, but to give well.
