Welcome Nana Grants to the CCF Family

In 2016, Erica Stephens founded Nana Grants in honor of her grandmother, Mary “Gran” Arivett, and her mother, Diann “Nana” Arivett. Mary helped raise Erica while Diann, a single mother, attended nursing school. In turn, Diann helped care for Erica’s young son while she built her public relations business. Every mother deserves a Nana in her life!

Nana Grants’ formula is simple: money for college + quality child care = economic mobility. Each Nana Grant helps cover the cost of child care for Georgia HOPE recipients for one year, renewable for the length of the student’s program of study at a Georgia Technical College. Their goal is to remove the uncertainty of continuous, quality child care from the equation so that student mothers can focus on their studies, graduate and have a rewarding, well-compensated career.
