Our Community Foundation awarded a $750 Fast Grant to help address our community’s need for more childcare. Washington Free Methodist Church received a grant from the Administrative Fund to support the startup of a new childcare program called Foundations Childcare Ministry. The grant will provide funding for emergency exit panic bars and interior paint for classrooms for the program. Free Methodist Pastor Adam Conder says the new program is being started by the Church to help address a community need for more childcare. “There are an increasing number of families who have become dependent on two incomes, which has increased demand for childcare. Our church’s sizeable campus as well as the numerous classrooms and large interior “flex” spaces provide an ideal location and layout for a childcare ministry.”
