PNC Foundation’s Grant Helps Fund Alta’s UPSTREAM Program

The PNC Foundation has awarded $8,000 to Alta Care Group’s UPSTREAM Program. The UPSTREAM Program is a home-based literacy and social-emotional development program provided to preschool to second grade children thorough the City and surrounding areas. The goal of the program is to increase a parent’s/guardian’s ability to nurture their child’s social, emotional and literacy development so he or she is better prepared to succeed early in school.

The PNC Foundation, through its Grow Up Great® initiative, has been a longtime supporter of Alta’s UPSTREAM Program. and this year increased its level of support. “We are grateful for PNC’s trust in our organization that their dollars are being well-spent on a highly effective program that sets children on the right path for academic success,” said Joe Shorokey, Alta’s CEO.
