New Grants Support CASSY’s Work in East Palo Alto

CASSY is honored to have received grants from the Palo Alto Community Fund, Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund, Palo Alto Medical Foundation and the Nick Traina Foundation to support our work in the Ravensood City School District. For the past three years, CASSY has partnered with the district to provide on-campus mental health services to all enrolled students at Costaño Elementary, Home of the 49er Academy and Ronald McNair Academy. Until the 2013-14 academic year, the district had been able to cover 100% of our program costs thanks to a three-year Department of Education School Improvement Grant. Despite the critical, ongoing need for social and emotional support, government funding has unfortunately ended. These four new grants will help keep CASSY on campus in the fall.
