The United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County has received a $150,000 grant over next 10 months from Annie E. Casey Foundation to implement a community-endorsed two-generation plan to provide programs for children that focus on healthy development, growth and education, as well as services for adults that concentrate on parenting, job skills and financial security.

San Antonio's Eastside Promise Neighborhood and Choice Neighborhood initiatives possess attributes that the Casey Foundation believes are key to successful neighborhood transformation, such as the presence of an established partnership of local organizations and public agencies; high-quality education, health and other support services for children; robust job training and financial education programs for adults; actively engaged parents and residents; and access to affordable housing to promote residential stability.
