The Hyde Family Foundations have awarded a grant in the amount of $10,000 to Victorian Village Inc.

This grant will serve as a partial match to The Urban Child Institute’s three-year challenge grant. One of the goals of the Hyde Family Foundations is to build vibrant urban communities around stable neighborhood anchors and we are grateful to be a part of that initiative.
