Ken-Rock Community Center is proud to be among the 79 projects, programs and events that will receive nearly $1.9 million over the next three years from the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois.
Ken-Rock will receive $20,000 to launch our Foundations for Success program. This program will be geared specifically to junior high students, concentrating on improving behaviors that lead to success such as study habits, conflict resolution, basic personal finance, and how to find the right career.
The Community Foundation has been kind to Ken-Rock in the past and it’s always humbling to go through the list of grant recipients. To be included with the likes of the Rockford Area Arts Council, Stepping Stones of Rockford, Kids Around The World, Boys & Girls Club of Rockford, Prairie State Legal Services is truly an honor.
