The Neill M. Timmons Foundation has awarded Neighborhood Focus a grant!

The Neill M. Timmons Foundation has awarded Neighborhood Focus a grant to be used to improve and expand Neighborhood Focus’ collection of values-based reading materials for K5 thru 5th grade students.  The goal is to empower at-risk students to achieve higher levels of reading readiness by providing them with a new library of high quality, age-appropriate books that reinforce the monthly character education curriculum taught during afterschool and summer programming.  Funds will support the purchase of approximately 360-400 books that correspond with the recommended monthly reading selections from Core Essentials.
