Marrakech
Inc. is pleased to announce it has received $20,000 in grants from the
Annie E. Casey Foundation. These funds will support the Work to Learn
Program in 2017, a DCF funded program providing services for youth
transitioning from foster care services.
The first grant will provide youth in foster care money for
asset purchases through the Jim Casey Youth Opportunities Initiative,
Opportunity Passport™ program. $10,000 will be available to participating youth
for matching funds for education, housing, health care, and transportation.
This award was made available through an Anonymous Donor.
The second $10,000 grant was awarded so that Marrakech Inc.
can support financial coaching integration as part of the Opportunity Passport™
program. This award was made available through the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s
Family Economic Success unit.

Both grants are intended to ensure all youth are on a path to
success by promoting economic well being and increasing financial
capability/stability.
