“The We Care Fund has been very generous to the Parent Resource Center over the years, which has greatly helped our Outreach Program and our low-income families,” Noor said. “Thanks to grants such as this, our children from low-income families are able to take some of our newest classes, such as Family Pre-K and Pee Wee Problem Solvers.

About 75 children enroll in the Outreach program each year.
