Robins Foundation announces the pending sale of the Lora M. Robins Family Learning Center (LMRFLC). We plan to reinvest proceeds from the sale to innovations and initiatives that positively impact Northside communities and align with our vision and mission.
We remain committed to children and families in Richmond’s Northside and will continue to invest in and support organizations and programs that align with the community needs and assets identified in our report, Portrait of Vulnerable Families & Community Needs in Richmond’s Northside.
Partnership for Families (PFF), which was launched along with the LMRFLC in order to support children families in Northside neighborhoods, has announced that they will transition to a temporary location upon closing of the sale, and are working to secure their new permanent location.
We expect to continue working with PFF as they too adapt their service delivery model to work more closely with families in the neighborhoods they serve.
“Throughout this process, we have ensured that the future owner upholds the commitments we made to provide quality childcare and school readiness in the community,” said Kelly Chopus, the foundation’s president and CEO. “The new owner is capable of and prepared to do that. They will continue to provide access to affordable, high-quality childcare for children of the community.”
We anticipate a closing for the sale of the LMRFLC by late spring, 2019.
