Established in 1998


Founded in 1926, Grace M. Eaton Childcare and Parent Resource Center was the first nonprofit childcare organization in Nashville, established for the express purpose of serving black, low-income, inner-city children. The mission of the program flows from the philosophy that Grace M. Eaton provides quality childcare for children of working parents, or those who are preparing for productive employment by completing educational programs or employment training. The Center works with parents and the community to prepare children for a healthy and successful future. This endowment is a component of that commitment to nurturing young lives.
