Delray’s Achievement Centers for Children & Families Receives Grant to Support Programming Efforts

The Achievement Centers for Children & Families (ACCF) in Delray Beach recently received a $10,000 grant from The Schmidt Family Foundation to support the organization’s general operating expenses.

Achievement Centers for Children & Families provides high-quality and affordable Out of School, Early Learning and Family Support Programs to numerous low-wage families in Palm Beach County. ACCF offered financial assistance for 70 families struggling to pay basic rent and utility needs during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. The organization also provided more than 243,000 nutritious meals, including 19,000 meals through a summer food distribution, including necessities like toilet paper, PPE gear and cleaning supplies.

After the pandemic caused the nonprofit organization to close in March of 2020 briefly, the staff launched a Virtual Learning Support (VLS) program designed to assist students with a distance-learning environment. The program helped provide the educational tools needed to continue learning, such as high-speed Internet and daily access to a healthy breakfast, lunch and snacks. 

“With the support of donors and foundations, such as this grant from The Schmidt Family Foundation, ACCF can ensure that we can keep our programs running to help our community and provide stabilizing efforts in a family’s time of need,” says Stephanie Seibel, CEO of ACCF. “We are so thankful to have been awarded this grant and thank The Schmidt Family Foundation for continuing to support us in our efforts.”
