Impact Micro Awards for June Announced
Fathers and Parenting Support Focus
The Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable announced its Impact Micro Awards for June on Tuesday, June 12. Impact Micro Awards are made to support organizations that have a proven track record of commitment to building community sustainability projects, activities, and service. The June awards focus on Fathers Support and Parenting organizations. The awards are given monthly. Wells Fargo Foundation is a major partner with the Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable’s Impact Micro Award Program.
The June Award recipients are: Cadre; Redefining Parenting in South L.A., The Drew League Foundation, and the Institute for Black Parenting, Inc. They embody the on the ground spirit and dedication to positive and effective fatherhood and parenting in Southern California.
“Budget cutbacks, the sharp increase in poverty, and the on-going struggle of small community service groups for funding have made it more imperative that we help fill the funding gap to boost them in their efforts to build community sustainability in under-served communities,” says Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson, “The Impact Micro Award Program aims to further community self-reliance and independence. This is the pathway to citizen empowerment.”
