In other news, Focus On Renewal is pleased to announce a $50,000 grant from The Heinz Endowments.  As a social service agency, we will use the funds to purchase computers and Waterford literacy software for the Positive Parenting Program.  As part of the program, FOR operates three kindergarten-readiness preschools for children ages 3-5 in the Sto-Rox community.  The Positive Parenting Program prepares children to succeed in school and helps their parents develop the knowledge and skills to build  stronger families.   

Father Regis Ryan, executive director of Focus On Renewal said “The Heinz Endowments have been exceptionally generous to Focus On Renewal for decades.  It is hard to estimate the value which their grants have brought to the children of this neighborhood.”
