NexBank has given $150,000 to the Child Care Access Fund at Texas Women’s Foundation (TXWF) to establish the first afterschool care program at Pleasant Grove Elementary School. NexBank’s investment will help run the program for three years from 2019 to 2021.
Roslyn Dawson Thompson, Texas Women’s Foundation president and CEO, said, “Our research showed the need for affordable childcare, particularly for low-income families. As a result, we established the Child Care Access Fund to invest in cost-effective, efficient programs that produce meaningful change for families in need, which are often headed by single women. We are thankful for NexBank and other donors who have contributed and hope others will join them.”
