Gratis Foundation supports the Loyola Clinical Centers’ work in Catholic schools
A $10,000 grant awarded from the Gratis Foundation will support the Loyola Clinical Centers' Catholic Schools Partnership Program, an initiative that provides direct services to at-risk students in Baltimore Catholic schools. The program also offers workshops to parents and teachers on a variety of critically important issues, including the identification and treatment of learning and behavioral disorders.

Through the partnership, Loyola graduate students, under the supervision of licensed and certified faculty members, provide speech-language pathology, psychology services, and audiology screenings to at-risk students in Baltimore Catholic elementary schools. The graduate students also assist with the implementation of curriculum and educational materials for educators.

The partnership is designed to meet the need for high-quality, affordable, community-based educational, speech-language and behavioral therapy intervention while providing comprehensive clinical training in a real world setting for graduate students.

The program furthers the mission and priorities of the Gratis Foundation, addressing many of the Foundation's priority areas, including education, health, human services, religion, and public/society benefit.
