The Children's Home selected for Literacy Grant
Posted By:  Shawn Maus

The Children’s Home of Cincinnati is excited to share that we have been granted a $25,000 from the Duke Energy Foundation!

The process of getting the grant is very competitive. The applicants were narrowed down from the Letter of Intent to 14 applications for final review. The grant was awarded to a single nonprofit that fosters and promotes the development and expansion of new and/or existing literacy programs supporting children and their families living in poverty from birth through early elementary school age.

The top winning organization was announced during the Scripps Howard Awards, the prestigious annual journalism recognition program presented by Scripps Howard Foundation. The two other finalists were Dayton Independent Schools and Princeton City School District. By empowering children to read, this grant helps the recipients to escape the cycle of poverty that can plague generations of families.
