Strong & Healthy Families initiative

Penn Manor Education Foundation has expanded its community outreach with a program called Strong & Healthy Families, which provides assistance to families struggling with financial, emotional and physical challenges that affect school-age children.

PMEF has establish a fund to provide “Strong Grants” to support existing programs such as the Penn Manor Family Fund and new initiatives to help students pay academic fees for college admissions and testing and offset the cost of uniforms and supplies for career specialized programs.

Grants also will support efforts to improve literacy, increase affordable housing options and provide mental health awareness and training.
