JEFFERSON SCHOOL AFRICAN AMERICAN HERITAGE CENTER

The center increases awareness and understanding of African-Americans’ contributions to local and national history for their roughly 2,500 annual visitors and program participants.

Two grants totaling $20,000 supported films, lectures, exhibitions and K-12 programs at the center, along with community programs that included art exhibits, the Maupintown Film Festival, a lecture series and tours of its permanent exhibition.

SIN BARRERAS/WITHOUT BORDERS

Two grants totaling $20,000 helped Sin Barreras hire a full-time staff member who increased the agency’s ability to meet increased demand for its services, which focus on outreach to the immigrant (primarily Hispanic) community, connecting individuals to services related to health, immigration, legal affairs, banking and education.

The new position at Sin Barreras helps address community priorities such as adolescent immigrant legal issues and Hispanic community health needs. This support directly benefited about 400 individuals.
