Giving Babies the Foundation to Succeed
Mainspring Schools is a best-in-class nonprofit preschool that eliminates the early childhood school readiness gap. Their mission is to deliver the highest quality early education and care to Austin’s most economically disadvantaged children – along with services so each child and parent have tools for success in school and life.
The grant will focus on the crucial early stages for at-risk children and their families. The goals of the multi-month intervention program are to identify toxic stress and prevent impaired brain and physical development. The grant will fund a full-time licensed therapist to develop and implement a parenting boot camp for Mainspring families to include pregnant moms, infant moms, and all newly enrolled moms.
