The Annie E. Casey Foundation is forming partnerships in three cities, including the Weinland Park neighborhood of Columbus, to improve the well-being of children and their families through community- and family-focused innovations. Over the next two years, the Casey Foundation will award up to $150,000 annually to the Weinland Park Collaborative, a partnership of more than a dozen institutions and agencies (including The Ohio State University), that is working with the civic association and residents to improve the quality of neighborhood life.

“This grant is recognition that the committed residents and organizations of Weinland Park have worked hard to improve lives in the neighborhood. The new partnership with the Annie E. Casey Foundation will provide an opportunity to grow and enhance support services for children and their families in Weinland Park,” said Valerie Lee, vice president for Outreach and Engagement and vice provost for Diversity and Inclusion.
