ZANESVILLE, Ohio – The Carr Center has received a $10,580 grant from Straker Foundation to fund their summer education programming for children. Carr Center Executive Director Becky Clawson is grateful and excited about the grant because of how the area children can benefit from it.

“The Straker Foundation has once again supported our summer program. This is our second year offering summer programming here for children, Grades K through Seven. If you have a child who needs somewhere to go for the summer with some academic support, the Carr Center is the place. There are spots open and the kids will come Monday through Friday. They’re welcomed,” Clawson said.

The summer program is part of the Carr Center’s Education Department that provides after school assistance and switches to longer hours once the school year ends. The Carr Center is known for its speech therapy program but offers much more to many more. 

“The other programs we have everyday are the Adult Daycare Center, it runs five days a week in the other part of our building. We have a Medical Transportation program that runs five days a week as well. That is a partnership with SEAT. So if you need a ride to a doctor’s appointment call SEAT and the Carr Center may be picking you up,” Clawson said.

The Carr Center is a non-profit organization that has served the specialized needs of residents since 1956.

The Straker Foundation is a charitable organization that seeks to assist local nonprofits that best serve the community.
