Caruth, Jr. Fund at Communities Foundation of Texas in support of our Safer Students, Stronger Schools (4S) campaign. This grant will fund program services for the next two school years, ensuring that mental health services are available and accessible for at‐risk students across Dallas County. We’re honored and deeply grateful for their belief and commitment to our work supporting students.
