Forty Carrots Family Center has been awarded a $6,000 grant from the Eugene F. and Elizabeth Hull Fund, Weichel Family Fund and Anonymous Donors of Manatee Community Foundation for its Partners in Play (PIP) parenting education summer program at the Braden River Library.

This program is designed to strengthen the bond between parents, caregivers and children (ages 0-5) by offering a safe, developmentally appropriate and creative play experience, guided by Forty Carrots’ professional parenting educators, at no cost to the participants. These research-based groups encourage both play and relationship building, which is at the heart of this program.  Since January 2018, Forty Carrots has served 533 unduplicated clients at Braden River, many returning week after week, and demand for groups consistently exceeds capacity.

Braden River Library is one of 15 library locations throughout Manatee and Sarasota counties where the PIP programs are offered, serving more than 2,500 clients annually at no cost.
