The Project: CenteringParenting®: Facility Remodel and Program Launch

The Commitment: $558,390


The Crystal Charity Ball funds will be used over two years to remodel a portion of their West Dallas facility and launch the CenteringParenting® Program. The remodeled space will more effectively accommodate their shared medical appointments program. The CenteringParenting® Program will provide well child examinations and health education for a baby’s first years of life in a group setting. Approximately 316 unduplicated children will be served.
