Education-10-10

In Loudoun County, there are multitudes of needs for specialized education for its children and families that are not being met. We have supported reading programs for autistic children and their families, as well as soccer programs for at risk teens. In addition, we have been able to start the first training sessions for the Boards of Non-Profit groups in the county so that their organization’s services can be enhanced for the residents they serve. 100WomenStrong recommends grants to applicants, allowing them to better accomplish, or increase their capacity to fulfill their mission. Each of these grants increases the quality of life for the residents of Loudoun County.
