redefinED atlanta Provided $100k to Two Atlanta Parent Groups for COVID Relief Fund

redefinED atlanta, a nonprofit dedicated to ensuring that every student in Atlanta has the opportunity to attend a high-quality public school, announced that it recently awarded a $100,000 grant to two parent groups, The Atlanta Thrive and the Latino Association for Parents in Public Schools (LAPPS), in order to create a COVID-19 relief fund that assisted metro-Atlanta families struggling with housing, food insecurity, and other basic needs during the pandemic.

“Many of Atlanta’s families faced food and housing challenges even before this health crisis,” said Ed Chang, executive director of redefinED atlanta. “COVID-19 has further exacerbated these inequities while amplifying other stressors, potentially causing increased childhood trauma that will affect the ability of their children’s future learning.”
