The Provident Bank Foundation Gives a $2,000 Grant to Children on the Green
MORRISTOWN, NJ – The Provident Bank Foundation recently donated a $2,000 grant to the Children on the Green, a licensed, non-profit childcare facility that is committed to partnerships that support all children and families.
The center, which reflects the surrounding community in its student body, supports the childcare needs of families from Homeless Solutions, the Jersey Battered Women's Services, and Family Promise of Morris County. With help from the Provident Bank Foundation, six children will be able to attend the facility for the 2012-2013 academic year as they transition to permanent housing and until they secure childcare vouchers from Child and Family Resources.
“The Provident Bank Foundation is pleased to support the efforts of Children on the Green and the efforts of its staff in making sure each family is given a reliable and caring support system,” said Kendall Warsaw, executive director of The Provident Bank Foundation.
According to the website, recognizing that all children develop at their own pace, the team of professionals at Children on the Green partner with parents to offer sensitive and appropriate caregiving in a program designed to support the unique needs of each child.
Remaining true to its mission, the center is building bridges to an inclusive community and allowing students to learn not only about themselves and their abilities, but also about the world around them.
“Children are children first, poor and homeless second,” said Laura Anderson, co-director of Children on the Green, recalling a quote that Rochelle Kelman, a late member of her team, used to recite.
