A $1.35 million grant to Center of Life, a faith-based outreach organization in Hazelwood, is set to be the largest single investment of The Heinz Endowments' place-based initiative.
The foundation announced today that the grant to Center of Life will expand and enhance its arts, education and athletics programs for youth and families.
The grant will help Center of Life expand programs by hiring and training new staff, adding partners and leveraging more funding from other sources.
Center of Life's programs include jazz bands and the KRUNK Movement, a music and dance ensemble that performs throughout the region.
The foundation has supported the organization in past years as well.
This latest gift is part of a larger initiative to develop the neighborhood.mobilehome - neigh_city - breaking - businessnews
