Neighborhood Ministries Awarded Thunderbirds Charities Grant for Katy’s Kids Preschool

Neighborhood Ministries is thrilled to have been awarded a grant for its Katy’s Kids Preschool program. The generous grant, provided by Thunderbirds Charities, will greatly support and advance our efforts to equip inner-city Phoenix children with the academic, social, emotional, problem-solving, language, and literacy skills needed to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. Since 2004, Katy’s Kids (which recently earned a five-star rating from First Things First) has helped address the community need for affordable, high quality preschool options, providing no-cost, comprehensive early intervention and child development services to 30 preschoolers annually.

“We are deeply grateful to Thunderbirds Charities for recognizing the importance of our Katy’s Kids Preschool. We are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead and the positive outcomes we can achieve together.”

This $25,000 grant will provide vital funding for crucial teacher salaries. Katy’s Kids teachers are skilled at developing strong social-emotional and academic foundations as well as relationships with each child and family that lasts well beyond preschool.
