Home Visit Partnerships Awarded Major Grant from CFT’s W.W. Caruth Jr. Fund

Stand for Children Texas is honored to be among the 15 nonprofits to receive grants from Communities Foundation of Texas’ W.W. Caruth Jr. Fund. The $500,000 grant will be applied to further studying the benefits of our Home Visit Partnership, which has already shown that when teachers visit their students at home, both the students’ behavior and the teacher’s satisfaction improve.

Through our grant work, we will partner with researchers from the Annenberg Institute at Brown University to conduct a randomized controlled trial evaluation to determine the true effects of this low-cost, relationship-based intervention.
